And we've just gotten some: Study finds CBD effective in treating heroin addiction. I'm sure we'll eventually get more, but probably more from Canada than the US.

Melatonin should be a prescription drug instead of an OTC "nutrition supplement". It's not innocuous; it can have significant side effects. I used to take it to help get to sleep. I'm not sure it actually did much for my insomnia, but eventually I heard that it can aggravate certain autoimmune diseases. In my case, I have a mild allergy to some pollen (don't know what kind) and a tendency to arthritis in my knuckles. At the time I heard about this side effect, those were getting worse. So I stopped taking the stuff and those things cleared up.
