That doesn`t mean that cannabis will never be sanctioned by the FDA in some form, said Commissioner Scott Gottlieb. It`s just highly doubtful that the agency would ever approve it for smoking. ``I prescribed blood pressure pills and all kinds of other things to my patients when I was a practicing physician not too long ago,`` Gottlieb said in an interview at Bloomberg`s headquarters in Ne....
