California’s Largest Doctors Association: Legalize It!

October 17, 2011

ANAHEIM, Calif. — California’s largest industry group for doctors is calling for the legalization of marijuana even as it maintains that the drug has few proven health benefits. Dr. Donald Lyman, the Sacramento physician who wrote the group’s new policy, said doctors are increasingly frustrated by the state’s medical marijuana law, which allows use with a doctor’s recommendation. Physicians are put in the uncomfortable position of having to decide whether to recommend a drug that’s illegal under federal law, Lyman said. “It is an open question whether cannabis is useful or not,” he told the newspaper. “That question can only be answered once it is legalized and more research is done. Then, and only then, can we know what it is useful for.” The CMA acknowledges health risks associated with marijuana use and proposes regulation similar to alcohol and tobacco, but the group says the consequences of criminalization outweigh the dangers. The federal government considers cannabis a drug with no medical use. The CMA wants the White House to reclassify it to help promote further research on its medical potential. Earlier this year, the Obama administration turned down a request to reclassify marijuana. That decision is being appealed in federal court by legalization advocates. Lyman called current laws a “failed public health policy.” But critics within the medical community said association leaders did not consider the broader implications of legalizing marijuana. “I think it’s going to lead to more use, and that, to me, is a public health concern,” Dr. Robert DuPont, an M.D. and professor of psychiatry at Georgetown Medical School, told the Times. Members of the CMA, which represents more than 35,000 California physicians, were informed of the trustees’ vote Saturday. It is the first major medical association in the nation to urge legalization of cannabis, according to a group spokeswoman. The group’s decision provoked an angry response from some in law enforcement. “Given everything that we know about the physiological impacts of marijuana – how it affects young brains, the number of accidents associated with driving under the influence – it’s just an unbelievably irresponsible position,” said John Lovell, spokesman for the California Police Chiefs Association. The CMA’s parent organization, the American Medical Association, has said the federal government should consider easing research restrictions, according to the Times. ___ See the rest here: California’s Largest Doctors Association: Legalize It!

CA Medical Assoc. Urges Pot Legalization

October 16, 2011
CA Medical Assoc. Urges Pot Legalization

The California Medical Association , the state’s largest doctor group, has shocked the nation by officially calling for legalization of marijuana. The CMA, which represents 35,000 physicians statewide, has adopted their pro-legalization position as the first major medical association in America to urge marijuana legalization. The statewide doctors’ association proposes that cannabis be regulated in the same manner as alcohol and tobacco currently are. The California Medical Association’s announcement is predictably receiving opposition from law enforcement bureaucrats in the state. “I wonder what they’re smoking,” said John Lovell of the California Police Chiefs Association. “It’s just an unbelievably irresponsible position.” Law enforcement has a political and economic interest in keeping California jails at maximum capacity, say critics. The U.S. government considers cannabis as having “no medical use”, however, the California Medical Association now wants the Obama administration to reclassify marijuana to promote further research on the potential of cannabis as medicine. The feds recently rejected a request to reclassify marijuana, but the decision is currently being appealed in federal court by advocates for marijuana legalization. Today, the federal government is cracking down on California’s medical marijuana industry with threats to prosecute property owners who rent buildings to medical marijuana dispensaries. U.S. federal law continues to prohibit the sale or possession of marijuana, while California upholds its state law that classifies possession of less than one ounce of weed as an infraction, not a misdemeanor. Doctors across America have called for further marijuana research, and the American Medical Association has called for the federal government to ease restrictions on cannabis research. Of all the AMA state affiliate organizations, though, it is the California Medical Association now calling for the full legalization of marijuana.
