Reese T. Jones, MD, PhD, Director of the Drug Dependence Research Center, stated in an Oct. 24, 2001 article in the San Francisco Chronicle:

“It is foolish to make it [marijuana] available for medical purposes. There is no evidence that smoked marijuana is better than Marinol and there are numerous over-the-counter remedies for nausea and vomiting. Most oncologists won’t bother with marijuana because there are better treatments available.”
