Founder and Executive Director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML)
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"For many patients, traditional medications do work and they do not require or desire medical marijuana. However, for a significant number of serious ill patients, including patients suffering from AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain among others, traditional medications do not provide symptomatic relief as effectively as medicinal cannabis. These patients must not be branded as criminals or forced to suffer needlessly in pain."
