A study by researchers at the University of Colorado indicates that medical marijuana, historically considered solely a recreational drug, may be useful in treating certain medical conditions. “We never expected to see medical benefits from medical marijuana,” said researcher Stephanie Lee,  “but it turns out it can be used to treat migraine headaches, pain in cancer patients, or pretty much any other ailment you can think of.”  The study results, if confirmed, could bring about a modest increase in the market for medical marijuana.  Industry experts caution, however, that medical uses will never amount to more than a small fraction of overall medical marijuana sales.
