MSNBC host Cenk Uygur explains how the National Cancer Institute has recognized several possible medical benefits from marijuana use. This could lead to having marijuana reclassified from a Schedule 1 drug down to a Schedule III drug in which case the government could not crack down on medical marijuana shops.

US National Cancer Institute: "THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF MEDICINAL CANNABIS FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH CANCER INCLUDE ANTIEMETIC EFFECTS, APPETITE STIMULATION, PAIN RELIEF AND IMPROVED SLEEP.

IN THE PRACTICE OF INTEGRATIVE ONCOLOGY, THE HEALTH CARE PROVIDER MAY RECOMMEND MEDICINAL CANNABIS NOT ONLY FOR SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT BUT ALSO FOR ITS POSSIBLE DIRECT ANTITUMOR EFFECT."
