Ever the progressive state where marijuana us concerned, Colorado took a quantum leap forward today as it announced that it will fund research about the drug’s potential for healing.

“The grants awarded by the Colorado Board of Health will go to studies on whether marijuana helps treat epilepsy, brain tumors, Parkinson’s disease and post-traumatic stress disorder. Some of the studies still need federal approval.”
