Founder and Director of the American Medical Marijuana Association
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"Drug policy reform is the issue for which I'm best known, and to which I've dedicated the better part of my life and most of my past efforts. In 1996, I helped Californians pass Proposition 215, the nation's first 'medical marijuana' law. Medical marijuana and 'compassionate use' legislation have since gained support and passage of across much of America, but there's a lot left to do.
Let me preface my position by pointing out one thing: This is no more about drugs than the Boston Tea Party was about tea. It's about freedom: Freedom to look after your own health without a bureaucrat snooping around in your medicine cabinet."
