MedPage Today (2/28, George) reports researchers found in a retrospective study that “medical cannabis was well-tolerated among elderly patients and provided significant symptomatic benefits.” The researchers found that older adults with “an average age of 81 experienced relief in chronic pain, sleep, neuropathy, and anxiety with medical cannabis.” The findings are scheduled to be presented at the American Academy of Neurology meeting in May.       HealthDay (2/28, Thompson) reports the researchers also found that “a third of” study participants “who took medical marijuana” reduced “their use of opioid painkillers.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
