“I’ve probably got some people on my side of the aisle who aren’t happy when I say this, but medical marijuana, I think, has a purpose,” Green said. “I have been supportive of that for probably about two years. It’s just time for us to use evidence based medicine, clinical studies at the RIB level. We’re talking about medical quality research, and we can’t do that as long as that drug is in its class.” (10/15/19)
