TIME Magazine Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“Research into the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis continued to bolster the case for the medicinal use of marijuana, making the ‘patient pot laws’ that have passed in 11 states seem less like a social movement than a legitimate medical trend.”

“A-Z Guide to the Year in Medicine,” TIME.com, Nov. 27, 2005
