LA Times on American College of Physicians call for medpot

This is a noteworthy article because it is the doctors talking on medpot and it is in California where Jack Herer is leading the effort to bring full legalization in November through the use of the Initiative process.

The link to the American College of Physicians report, which happens to be dated 2/8 and not this 2/14, is in the introduction at http://www.acponline.org/acp_news/medmarinews.htm

SACRAMENTO -- -- A large and respected association of physicians is calling on the federal government to ease its strict ban on marijuana as medicine and hasten research into the drug's therapeutic uses.

The American College of Physicians, the nation's largest organization of doctors of internal medicine, with 124,000 members, contends that the long and rancorous debate over marijuana legalization has obscured good science that has demonstrated the benefits and medicinal promise of cannabis.

n a 13-page position paper approved by the college's governing board of regents and posted today on the group's website, the group calls on the government to drop marijuana from Schedule I, a classification it shares with illegal drugs such as heroin and LSD that are considered to have no medicinal value and a high likelihood of abuse.

The declaration could put new pressure on Washington lawmakers and government regulators who for decades have rejected attempts to reclassify marijuana.

We are slaves to the corporations and the government is the overseer.
