With virtually no hard proof that medical marijuana benefits sick children, and evidence that it may harm developing brains, the drug should only be used for severely ill kids who have no other treatment option, the nation's most influential pediatricians group says in a new policy.

Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras raises his fist as he greets supporters following victory in the election in Athens on January 25, 2015Radical left party Syriza swept to power in Greece on Sunday promising to end years of painful austerity policies, in an election victory that puts the country on a collision course with the EU and international creditors. In a result that exceeded analysts' expectations, Syriza and its 40-year-old leader Alexis Tsipras won 149 seats in the 300-seat Greek parliament, just two short of an absolute majority, with most of the votes counted. The New Democracy party of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, the former party of government, was routed and reduced to around 76 seats. Syriza will become the first anti-austerity party to take power in Europe and Tsipras will be Greece's youngest prime minister in 150 years.
