The Medical Association, the largest group of doctors in the United States, has reconsidered its position on medical marijuana and is vigorously supporting medical marijuana research and medical studies. On Tuesday, the organisation convinced the federal government to re-evaluate its Schedule I controlled marijuana substance categorization, which unfairly maligns the plant along with some of the more addictive narcotic substances, such as LSD and heroin.Learn more at Cannabis-Craft Cannabis Recreational Marijuana Dispensary
Dr. Edward Langston, AMA board officer, states that only a minimum number of controlled, casual tests on ingested marijuana have been maintained, despite medical research by medical marijuana doctors and other experts spanning more than thirty years. As for now, the group supports new research on the effectiveness of medical marijuana amid its support for the classification of marijuana in Schedule I since 1997, as more and more medical marijuana doctors emerge over time.
The Obama administration also instructed federal drug agents this year to stop prosecuting individuals who use and sell medical marijuana in states that have legalised medical marijuana (including medical marijuana doctors), reflecting a change in emphasis from the intense opposition of previous administrations to the use of medical marijuana, including for people with medical marijuana cards. At the moment, 14 states expressly legalise the use of medical marijuana, and about 12 other states have started to think about doing so. The American Medical Association is interested in research which takes alternative methods of using medical marijuana into account, apart from therapeutic smoking. Medical marijuana lawyers explore other advantageous approaches for the use of medical marijuana, including the extraction of cannabis oil rich in THC, which is claimed to be capable of treating cancer patients. Today, nobody is persecuted for cannabis use if a legitimate medical marijuana card is present.
