    Default French Cannabis-Based Drug Trial FAIL

    One person has been left “brain-dead” and five more have been hospitalised after a clinical trial on a cannabis-based drug went wrong in France.

    The health ministry said the “serious accident” happened on Thursday, stopping the tests and forcing all volunteers to be recalled.

    A statement released today did not confirm the name of the drug being tested but French media reports claimed it was a new cannabis-based painkiller.

    Taken orally, it was undergoing a Phase 1 clinical trial at a licenced private European laboratory that specialises in clinical trials, the French health ministry said.

    The trial aimed to evaluate the “safety, tolerance and pharmaceutical properties of the molecule” in healthy volunteers.

    Marisol Touraine, the French health minister, said she was travelling to Rennes, where the group are being treated, today.

    “Marisol Touraine wants to express her solidarity and deep determination to get to the bottom of what happened and establish responsibility for this tragic accident,” a statement added.

    One of the six volunteers is currently in intensive care at Rennes University Hospital, where the other five are also being treated.

    France’s medicines agency (ANSM) has launched an investigation into the laboratory.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Don't change the molecules of marijuana and people won't die.

    Legalising dope would help too.

    Cannabis oil is safe as it is and heals, what the fuck did they do to it?? I take oil weekly, and smoke daily. This is bullshit.

    it is hard to tell from the article. maybe it is a bio-identical or maybe it was a crazy high dose. since it was a phase 1 study, they were probably trying to determine an MTD (maximum tolerated dose). guess they didn't find it.

    They're trying to create some synthetic formula so big pharma can make a few bucks. Just grow it in your back yard yourself.

    oh sorry, y'all don't live in Colorado.

    It's totally wasted on me because I don't smoke it. Everyone that comes to visit us wants to make a stop at one of the shops.
