By now you may have heard about President Trump awarding Miriam Adelson the Medal of Freedom.

“A medical doctor, Miriam has dedicated her life to fighting addiction, something we’re all becoming all too familiar with,” Trump said at one point. The president’s brother Fred died young because of his alcoholism.

Maybe the President also had this in mind:

…several studies conducted by researchers at the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Center for the Biology of Addictive Diseases at Tel Aviv University have highlighted cannabis’ potential to treat certain degenerative diseases.

A 2013 study conducted by researchers from the center found that two parts of cannabis, THC and CBD, could help regulate inflammation in patients with autoimmune diseases, particularly multiple sclerosis. A 2011 study had similar findings.

Maybe with Lindsey Graham set to lead the Senate Judiciary Committee come next session and the total change in the House, we will see some progress getting made on cannabis reform.

And possibly our War in Afghanistan will wind down.
