    I see that USA Federal Drug Admin. has approved ‘Epidiolex’ (GW Pharma) first cannabis-based drugs. Does this finally mean ‘cracks are appearing’ in their staunch ‘Schedule #1’ branding; No Known medical use & most open to abuse (alongside Heroin) ?

    If so it could finally be an admission, that their zero-tolerance (Federal) attitude, has fallen over; which NZ & may other countries have blindly followed for over 40 years ! 😦
