Americans for Medical Rights Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“It is well-known that many seriously ill and terminal patients with diseases such as AIDS and cancer find marijuana is the medication that alleviates the symptoms of their disease. Furthermore, marijuana helps many patients survive the treatment of chemotherapy or AIDS therapy. It is important that these patients not be criminalized for using the only medication that works for them. Also, doctors should have the right to recommend any treatment option that works for their patients.”
