Medical Marijuana Throughout History - Medicines That Contained Cannabis

The Journal of the Medical Society of New Jersey Volume XXXV - Jan.-Dec. 1938

In the article on cannabis indica prescriptions in the December journal, page 748, the Editor made the statement, "It is hardly probable that any physician in New Jersey will have occasion to prescribe the drug." However, an article in the December issue of the Bulletin of the Bronx County Medical Society, New York City, calls attention to twenty-eight pharmaceutical preparations which contain cannabis, -- many of them with no indication of its presence. The list was compiled by Mr. Marty Sasman, of the Professional Relations Committee of the Bronx County Pharmaceutical Association, and is as follows:

(1) Cannabis; Cannabis seeds; Extract Cannabis
