What with the side effects reported from treatment with such drugs which are recommended by the FDA. A study conducted by the Pain Research Centre concluded that medical marijuana is effective in the treatment of FM. 62% of the patients reported good results with only 5% stating otherwise. Marijuana was also reported to have only a few side effects. The only drawback reported was that its effects don't seem to last long.
