    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[Donald Abrams, MD, also commented on the biased federal approach to research. In the late '90s Abrams conducted a federally funded study to determine the safety of smoked marijuana in AIDS patients taking protease inhibitors.] At that time we could not use the federal government's marijuana to show that it might be beneficial because NIDA has a mandate from Congress that they could only supply marijuana for research to show that it might be dangerous, ... Subsequently NIDA has changed their mechanism so we can look for benefit.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[Abrams described a historically significant episode that revealed how the medical establishment -not just the government- has upheld prohibition.] In 1997 after the law was changed in California, Jerome Kassirer, who was Editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, wrote an editorial on medical marijuana called 'federal foolishness,' saying 'We know this drug works, everybody has their anecdotal experience of people who have benefited from it, get over it, reschedule it, make it schedule 2.' Unfortunately, ... he very shortly thereafter became no longer the editor in chief of the New England Journal of Medicine.”
