    Abstract

    Marihuana, which has been known for over 2000 years, has become a subject of major controversy in the last decade or so. Unfortunately, the scare stories attributed to the use of marihuana in the late 1930s [1] have been replaced by studies of recent origin, some of which are poorly controlled and from which questionable conclusions have been drawn [2,3]. The government has published an objective evaluation of the effects of this drug on health [4]. The interest in this drug may be measured by the number of recent articles which have appeared in this journal [5–8].
