American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Biography
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"On behalf of the AARP Board of Directors, thank you for your letter of September 26, 2007 on your organization's work on the pros and cons relating to the medical use of marijuana. We appreciate hearing from you and we apologize for the delay of this response.
As your materials indicate, there is still significant medical and legal controversy on this issue. Accordingly, AARP has not taken a position on this topic. It is our general policy to support further study of the safety and efficacy of (non-traditional) complementary and alternative medicine treatments."
