Dr. Lester Grinspoon Strikes Again PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 07 March 2007

Recently published, Marijuana Gains Wonder Drug Status, by Dr. Lester Grinspoon, who has studied marijuana for 40 years, shines an insightful light on the quandary of medical marijuana. While Grinspoon acknowledges Dr. Abram’s study, proving smoked marijuana relieves neuropathic pain that narcotics fail to relieve, he questions why we still need “proof” of something that medicine has known for 5,000 years.

Additionally, he graciously gives legislators an easy way to admit they’ve been mistaken all these years. They can simply cite, “important new data” he says, when creating more compassionate laws that allow the sick and dying access to medical marijuana. Hopefully, they'll listen.
