Cannabis is now legally being used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, including chronic pain, alcoholism, drug addiction, anxiety, nausea (from chemotherapy) and epilepsy. Such a potent agent, which had been locked up for a century, is understandably attracting a lot of attention. Additionally, the fact that it is a botanical means that there is room for development in plant cultivation and processing, besides the traditional pharma areas of drug synthesis, formulation, processing and delivery. So there's a lot of room and a good material to work with.
