He thought that since human knowledge never amounts to certainty, but only to probability, that treatment should go no further than to appear as being a therapy and verisimilitude was acceptable, as long as the patients were happy. The only bad side effect of using the cannabis seemed to be the irrational disorder known as eleutheromania that certain long term patients developed.
