CALIF. MEDICAL ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION INITIATIVE

 

East County News Service

February 1, 2016 (Sacamento)—The California Medical Association, the largest professional association of doctors in our state, today announced its support for a ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana use.

CMA has emphasized that it does not endorse marijuana use and discourages smoking.  “But ultimately,” a release issued by the medical group states that its members “believe that the most effective way to protect the public health is to tightly control, track and regulate marijuana and to comprehensively research and educate the public on its health impacts, not through ineffective prohibition.”
