Position on Medical Marijuana

“I believe in it. I believe it’s got value,” Griffith said. “We’re using opioids; we’re using barbiturates. … I fear the dangers of marijuana, [but] we know the dangers of those two substances — they’re far worse than marijuana. I’m a big proponent of using it medicinally.” 7/18/18


"There are countless reports of marijuana's medicinal benefits in treating conditions including cancer, epilepsy, and glaucoma," said Griffith. "It is time to research this further, and, where legal, to allow real doctors and real pharmacists to prescribe or dispense marijuana for legitimate medical reasons for real patients. I am pleased to have Congressman Blumenauer join me again in introducing this legislation. I believe the Compassionate Access Act is a good, responsible approach." 2/2/17
