Founder and Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"Medical marijuana helps patients suffering from chronic pain, AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis and a host of other conditions. The therapeutic benefits of marijuana are so well-documented that 11 states have passed laws legalizing marijuana for medical use. And polls find a majority of Americans support the use of marijuana for medical purposes."
