Saul Rubin Biography

Title:
Assistant Professor of Journalism at Santa Monica College
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“Despite the many hurdles facing its implementation, the medical marijuana issue will not disappear for one vital reason: Patients believe it works. And they’re not hesitant to tell others who may need it. Cancer patients speak of enduring wretched periods of nausea and then discovering a small stash of pot in their mailbox one day, courtesy of a concerned friend. As word spreads, the medicinal marijuana movement has gained momentum. The passage of state voter initiatives only brings into the open what had been an underground practice for years. This is a profound movement involving grandmothers and other mainstream citizens who just want to get well.”
