Partner and Political Consultant at Zimmerman & Markman
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"Having researched and written a book on the medical use of marijuana, I have concluded that the evidence is overwhelmingly in its favor, from the standpoints of both medical effectiveness and safety. As a drug, it is no more intoxicating than wine or beer, and according to the federal government's own study commissioned by the Institute of Medicine, there is no causal relationship between the use of marijuana and harder drugs."
Experts PhD's and JD's (lawyers) with significant post-doctoral involvement in medical marijuana issues; judges who have presided over medical marijuana cases. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
