WASHINGTON (AP) A new UniLcd Slates government report questioned some widely held beliefs about marijuana Friday and suggested the drug may hold medical value for glaucoma patients. The second annual report to the U.S. Congress hy the Na- tional Institute of Mental-Health emphasized, however, thai more research is needed on the effect of marijuana on driving ability, chromosomes in women of childbearing age and possible damage (o the brain and kid- neys. Authors of the report sug- gested that "simple availability of marijuana may not be the most significant telor in its use and abuse." "In the attempt to prevent abuse." Ibcy said, "social cus- toms and controls, guided by in- formal knowledge, are far more potent (dan legal sanction.1) alomv." USE INCItKASISt; The institute said marijuana use appears lo be widespread and on the increase, with no signs of tapering off. "With the grcally expanded research effort into marijuana and related the re- port said, "there is a strong possibility that cannahis deriva- tives, very possibly in chemi- cally modified form, will once agein achieve medical accept- ance in the treatment erf a vari- ety of conditions.'' It cited a 1971 study by R. S. Hepler and I. M. Frank in the journal of the American Mcdi- cal Association in which most of the 11 marijuana-smoking sub- jects showed up to a '25 per cent decrease in interocular (eye) pressure. AHhough more research will I be required, Uie institute said, the experiment "holds forth the promise" that marijuana or some derivative may he useful in treatment of glaucoma, a hardening o[ the eyeball often resulting in blindness. The institute researchers said recent studies, generally favora- ble, have shown marijuana can be effective in treatment of de- pression, alcoholism, skin prob- lems, sinus, ear inflammations and to prevent epileptic ici zurcs.
