Criminal Defense Attorney and Founder of the Law Offices of Richard J. Beada
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"The practice of Federal prosecutors to not indict simple possession of marijuana cases is a policy decision, grounded more in the efficient use of limited prosecutorial resources than in any recognition from the justice department that medical marijuana should be a national trend."
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.]
