This week the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (OFSP) announced the results of its analysis of the medicinal effects of cannabis. They concluded that cannabis is useful for reducing chronic pain related to cancer, spasms due to multiple sclerosis, nausea caused by chemotherapy, AIDs related weight loss, sleeping problems and Tourette’s syndrome.
