Let’s say you are pregnant, and at risk for complications.
Are you and your baby better off if you live in Mississippi — or Cuba?
Going by the statistics, you’re better off in Havana than in Biloxi or many other places in the United States if you’re poor.
That’s true even though the United States spends more than $9,000 per person per year on healthcare and Cuba spends less than $3,000.
Can marijuana save the day?
But Americans in pain are already turning to the marijuana plant.
The hope: One day you’ll have a choice of varieties or formulations of compounds in marijuana — called “cannabinoids” — that bring relief, aren’t addictive, and leave your mind clear.
