Our Letter to the Editor of JAMA

SCC Board Members recently published a Letter to the Editor of JAMA opposing several key provisions in the “model guidelines” the Federation wants the state medical boards to adopt. These provisions would:

  • Trigger investigations of cannabis clinicians based on how many patients they approve and how many plants they authorize patients to grow.
  • Constrain cannabis clinicians from using cannabis as medicine themselves.
  • Prevent cannabis clinicians from conducting research in concert with dispensaries.
