No. Cannabis is not a dangerous drug. It’s most distinguishing characteristic is its lack of toxicity. This plant has been used as a medicine for over 4,000 years now across many cultures. Prohibitionists lied to make this plant illegal and continue to spew rather silly arguments that are easily disproved by any rigorous examination of facts. More research is necessary to improve the quality and effectiveness of cannabis based medicines – but this cannot be accomplish by the corrupt act of preventing any real research – our government’s existing policy.
