New England Journal of Medicine Biography

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

“Federal authorities should rescind their prohibition of the medical use of marijuana for seriously ill patients and allow physicians to decide which patients to treat. The government should change marijuana’s status from that of a Schedule I drug … to that of a Schedule II drug … and regulate it accordingly.”

“Federal Foolishness and Marijuana,” by Jerome P. Kassirer, MD, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, Jan. 30, 1997
