Italy has a medical marijuana program but it is expensive and only serves a few patients.  Here's a clever way to increase supply -- have the army grow it.   The Italian army will now grow medical marijuana in a secure military lab in order to lower costs and make it more available to those who need it, following an agreement between the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Health last week . . .
