So Michael Corcoran (Sheaf Sept. 23) is basically saying that this 
synthetic form of THC is not good for suppressing artificially induced 
seizures in one part of the brain of rats. This story, in my opinion, is 
bad science, and even worse reporting. It is much like saying that because 
someone can drive a nail with a rock, they could also drive a nail with a 
potato, simply because they are roughly the same size, weight, shape, and 

Other studies, and thousands of people's personal accounts, suggest that 
the whole range of cannabinoids found in actual Marijuana have shown to 
reduce actual seizures in the whole brain of actual humans.
