If improved delivery systems could be devised, it is likely that patients could titrate optimum doses of the drug to avoid some of these unwanted effects, but the therapeutic window between a medically effective dose and an intoxicant one is narrow. A possible acceptable alternative to smoking may be to give cannabis by means of a sublingual spray, and this is currently being tested in clinical trials (13S ). Psychomotor impairment CB1 receptors are expressed in particularly high densities in the basal ganglia and cerebellum, so it is not surprising that cannabinoids have complex effects on psychomotor function (14R ).
Extravagant warnings were issued, suggesting that cannabis was a highly dangerous drug that could cause chromosomal damage, impotence, sterility, respiratory damage, depressed immune system responses, personality changes, psychosis, and permanent brain damage (1R , 2S ). Most of these claims were later proved to be spurious, and balanced reviews (3R –5R ) have shown how effectively many of them have been demolished. Currently cannabis is widely perceived to be relatively safe. Many people believe that there are genuine medical uses for cannabis-based medicines (6R , 7R , 8RS ), and it seems likely that such products will gain official approval in several Western countries.
