Comments

We write to request your help in removing the administrative barriers to scientific research on medical treatments derived from the cannabis plant, also known as "medical marijuana." We have heard from numerous patients across the U.S. and parents whose children have treatment-resistant conditions about the benefits they have experienced from using cannabis to treat serious illnesses. Many prominent physicians and physician groups, including the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Neurology, and the American Academy
of Family Physicians, have joined patients and families in calling for more research about the use of medical cannabis (in a letter to Presdient Obama about expanding research for medical marijuana)
