A clip from the article -

Marijuana, already shown to reduce pain and nausea in cancer patients, may be promising as a cancer-fighting agent against some of the most aggressive forms of the disease.
A growing body of early research shows a compound found in marijuana - one that does not produce the plant's psychotropic high - seems to have the ability to "turn off" the activity of a gene responsible for metastasis in breast and other types of cancers.

If it is effective it will be banned as if it's deadly poison.

@edgarblythe,
Presumably they have already separated out the cannabidiol for the testing procedures.

(See the second page of the article)
