I wouldn't count on it, they are going to look for solid studies conducted by highly regarded institutions, or possibly only government institutions. There are none, don't tell me there are because there are not any that have been conducted well-enough to be taken seriously.
I understand what you are saying, but I beg to differ:?Gold Standard? Studies Show That Inhaled Marijuana Is Medically Safe And Effective | NORML Blog, Marijuana Law Reform
There are not too many "gold standard" studies on inhaled whole plant cannabis
, but they do exist. Besides:

There are many medically accepted uses of drugs for indications that have not undergone Phase III level testing. For example, take the use of platelet-rich plasma (PrP) injections for the treatment of Achillies tendonitis or tennis elbow.
Actually there are tons of solid studies, even government studies that say pot is harmless. Your "there are none dont tell me there are" attitude is quite funny.
I think what EasternSmoker was referring to was FDA approved studies showing inhaled whole plant cannabis as effective for treatment of specific medical conditions, NOT just that cannabis is safe.
Ever hear of the Shafer commision ????? Pretty sure you have your facts a bit twisted or your minds shut too tightly to our past history...
The Shafer commission's report was not a medical study. It did not prove that cannabis is effective for treating any medical conditions.
Ha! Someone here on GC called this about a week ago. It's a Democrat push to kick the stoners into gear for voting season. Nothing will be declassified, nothing will be decriminalised, the best you can hope for is MJ being reduced to a Sch 2.
Nothing to do with democrats or the election. The suit was filed by ASA, which has been working on getting cannabis rescheduled for years
. And getting cannabis moved to Schedule II would be a tremendous benefit.
