Cannabis has played major role in my life for a very long time, so the current transition to legal cannabis has affected me in many ways, some for the better, some for the worse. One of my favorite aspects of the new regime is the explosion of research on the cannabis plant.

I keep a close eye on the cannabis headlines and I have recently seen a number of studies that disprove some of the enduring fallacies regarding cannabis. Here are a few of my favorites.
