What the Experts Say

  • Dr. Sanjay Gupta Neurosurgeon

    "It doesn't have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes Marijuana is the only thing that works...

    It is irresponsible not to provide the best care we can as a medical community, care that could involve Marijuana.

    We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that."

  • Lester Grinspoon Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard University

    "Contrary to what we’ve all been mis-taught marijuana is not a very harmful drug… it’s a drug remarkably free of toxicity providing it’s used intelligently."

  • American Nurses Association

    "Marijuana is seen as efficacious in reducing nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy"

  • John A. Benson Professor of Internal Medicine

    "Some patients do not respond well to other medications and have no effective alternative to smoking marijuana…"

  • American Public Health Association

    "Jurisdictions that have legalized medical marijuana,decriminalized possession of marijuana and/or other drugs, or tolerated limited, retail sales…have not experienced significant, if any, increases in marijuana or other drug use."
