Chelsea Shover, PhD Biography

Title:
Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Psychiatry at Stanford University
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“There are valid reasons to pursue medical cannabis policies, but this [lowering opioid deaths] doesn’t seem to be one of them. I urge researchers and policymakers to focus on other ways to reduce mortality due to opioid overdoses.”
