Congratulations to the NYU Langone Comprehensive Epilepsy Center's Dr. Daniel Friedman and Dr. Orrin Devinsky!

Dr. Friedman and [co-author Dr. Orrin] Devinsky point out that while we don't know all of the long-term and short-term side effects of using cannabis and cannabidiol, we do know the impact of uncontrolled epilepsy, and that must be considered when looking at the use of cannabis.
