  • “The American Nurses Association (ANA) recognizes that patients should have safe access to therapeutic Marijuana/cannabis. Cannabis or Marijuana has been used medicinally for centuries. It has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of symptoms and conditions.”

  • “I have found in my study of these patients that Cannabis is really a safe, effective and non-toxic alternative to many standard medications. There is no such thing as an overdose. We have seen very minimal problems with abuse or dependence, which at worst are equivalent to dependence on caffeine. While a substance may have some potential for misuse, in my opinion, that’s a poor excuse to deny its use and benefit to everyone else.”

    Philip Denney, MD / Physician
  • "For more than a year, The American Legion has called on the federal government to support and enable scientific research to clinically confirm the medicinal value of cannabis. The National Academy of Medicine recently reviewed 10,000 scientific abstracts on the therapeutic value of cannabis and reached nearly 100 conclusions in a report issued earlier this year. As a two million member strong veteran service organization, our primary interest and advocacy is grounded in the well being and improved health of our veterans, and specifically our service disabled veterans..." (Letter to Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin)

    American Legion National Commander Denise Rohan
  • "The AAN (American Academy of Neurology) supports all efforts to allow for rigorous research to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of medical marijuana and compounds derived from the plant. This includes proposals that increase access for the study of medical marijuana under IRB-approved research protocols and the reclassification of medical marijuana from its current Schedule I status to Schedule II to allow for medical research."

    American Academy of Neurology
  • “Carefully prescribed medical use of marijuana may, in fact, be appropriate and we should follow the science as opposed to ideology on this issue."
