What about Medical Marijuana for Hyperemesis Gravidarum

Since I first published this episode, I've heard from many people about this topic. There is a lot of interest about medical marijuana for seizures (especially for children, because it seems like a safer alternative to most anticonvulsives), cancer, pain, and of course, nausea. I found a few articles about it that I didn't have last time. Hyperemesis Gravidarum and Clinical Cannabis: To eat or not to eat. It's long, but makes some good points about starvation during HG. Pregnancy and Medical MarijuanaHere's an interesting study: Infant exposure during gestationSince then, Ricki Lake announced she was directing a new film called Weed the People. It's about the use of cannabis as a medical treatment for children. I've enjoyed Ricki Lake's other films like The Business of Being Born. (Side note: She's also set to direct a film about Birth Control. I can't wait for that.)Thoughts?
