The use of cannabis as a drug has undergone a remarkable change of direction: considered as a symbol of countercultures in past decades, it is presently being hailed as a cure for any number of diseases and conditions. Thus, despite concerns about the safety of cannabis and cannabinoids, quite a few drugs that contain cannabinoids have recently been approved by several drug agencies, and the medicinal and recreational use of cannabis has been legalized in various countries and states. The promise of cannabinoids for therapeutic use, as well as potentially detrimental health risks and regulatory issues, will need to be carefully weighed. .
