David W. Brook, MD Biography

Title:
Professor of Community and Preventive Medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine
Position:
Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“The AMA has never supported the use of unapproved medicines and their policy doesn’t support the use of marijuana. There has been little in well-designed studies on the topic. I would be interested in seeing more research to see if it can be conclusively shown that it is better than other medications.”
