Who conducted these studies and what was the report for the narijuana users?
You might be in the mental health field but you are still subjected to studies and directives of great corporate interests, so i am not sure how real is the information they provide you with.

Are you certain those disorders/medical problems are coming solely from the use of marijuana? Of course the synthetic versions do harm as much every synthetic product.

The law needs overhauling in that aspect before another legal drug is added to society.
The point is who benefits from that research and what implications are hidden behind the scenes. It's a very complex world and often we forget that there are many strings attached in the shadows. Simply put the official medical establishment wouldn't post a study that would harm the market and the big pharma's profits.
