"The pill form of cannabis is already available, but it is infrequently prescribed by palliative medicine physicians because it is an inferior medicine compared to other choices."
When will these doctors learn that you can't beat nature! Trying to compare synthesized cannabis to natural cannabis is just stupid.
A group of Little Rock doctors have announced their opposition to the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act.
Dr. David E. Smith, a Palliative Care physician at Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock says, " State of the art Palliative Care does not
support the use of smoked marijuana as desirable treatment for relief of pain or suffering. I help patients deal with pain, suffering, and death every day. I want everyone in Arkansas to know that so called ‘medical' marijuana is not a scientifically validated way to relieve suffering." .
Dr. Smith went on to say that he and his group are urging Arkansans to vote against Issue 5, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act. "I can think of no reason for using smoked marijuana as medicine," Smith said. "The pill form of cannabis is already available, but it is infrequently prescribed by palliative medicine physicians because it is an inferior medicine compared to other choices."
Several Arkansas organizations have recently gone on record against medical marijuana. These include the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, the Arkansas Sheriffs' Association, the Arkansas Association of Chiefs of Police, and State Drug Director Fran Flener.
