My left heel was crushed, while over on the right, my tibia and fibula – the two long bones in the lower leg – detached from their couplings and shattered. Th...

This, of course, is great news for the marijuana movement thanks to the abundance of information about cannabis and its amazing therapeutic potential. Such news is especially promising considering the recent rise in senior cannabis use because they are the demographic who can benefit from it most. In fact, there are many ways cannabis therap...
