Major physician association asks for change in marijuana laws
The Baltimore Sun, February 15, 2008
The American College of Physicians, a 124,000-member group that is the nation's largest for doctors of internal medicine, is calling on the federal government to ease its strict ban on marijuana as medicine and hasten research into the drug's therapeutic uses. The association contends that the long and rancorous debate over marijuana legalization has obscured good science demonstrating the benefits and medicinal promise of cannabis.
