More medical research needed to confirm benefits of pot

Yes. This is true. Unfortunately, political posturing has delayed honest research on the health benefits of pot, least the research undermine "the war on drugs." My question is - where is the money dedicated to this question?

“We’re looking for the evidence to support a drug that’s been made available, where usually it’s the other way around,” Dr. Simpson told The Globe and Mail. “We know that there’s a history in medicine of lots of things that seem promising, but once they’re subjected to the rigour of scientific inquiry, they turn out to be either not as good as advertised or harmful, rather than helpful.”
