NJ medical user imprisoned for 5 years, petition to Christie to grant clemency[edit]

Regarding the name of the article[edit]

While this article still has some ways to go, the summary correctly makes a point differentiating the incorrect derogatory slang term "marijuana" from its latin name "cannabis". However, the actual page remains named "marijuana". I suggest we alter the page title to reflect what we actually underscore in the very same article, and set the term marijuana to simply redirect to cannabis (the actual article remaining the same).

I moved the page to Cannabis sativa Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 16:07, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Sweet move! The avenger RW deserves. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:28, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 17:30, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Why not just cannabis? The term sativa isn't used or explained anywhere in the article. WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 18:01, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
I tried and failed to do so; as the redirect at Cannabis would have to be deleted first. Cannabis sativa however is the most commonly used plant (a less commonly used species being Cannabis indica) Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 18:28, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
While I understand that it bugged, I think we should adress that. Sativa, Indica and even Ruderalis (in the autofeminized strains) are actively grown, smoked, and part of the whole thang. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:39, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
I guess we'd need an admin to do that, wouldn't we? Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 18:41, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
I actually don't know - I guess I'll learn how this all works now, then. But yeah, maybe we could rustle one out of the bushes and attempt to sort of poke it in the right direction with some manner of direction-suggestional prying rod? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:38, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

This page should be renamed[edit]

This page should be "Cannabis" since it's not specifically about Cannabis sativa. Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica are two closely-related species (or possibly varieties) that interbreed readily. Both species are in commercial use. Bongolian (talk) 18:53, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

I agree. Please do so. Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 21:30, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
I agree too mister, honest! I'm helping! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:38, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
I helped too! Alec Sanderson (talk) 01:58, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

And that's why you shouldn't...[edit]

Well I agree with that statement, but it appears to be rather apropos of nothing... Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 21:34, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Typo?[edit]

In the CBD section of the article, speaking of epilepsy Its states “In 2018, an FDA panel recommended CBD a the very narrowly defined treatment,” Should it state “ In 2018, an FDA panel recommended CBD AT the very narrowly defined treatment,”? I apologize in advance if this is an improper way to address this thank you all for the awesome work you do. — Unsigned, by: 73.218.237.230 / talk

Thanks. It should have been "as" not "at". I have now fixed it. Bongolian (talk) 18:21, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
