Sara Conrad's curator insight, September 7, 2013 4:54 PM

Just an article in the New England Journal of Medicine from March 6, 2013.

Of particular interest are the responses to it. 

NEJM, according to their wiki, is "the oldest continously published medical journal. It's not a magazine you walk down and get at the grocery store. It's primary target is physicians. The responses are from physicians. And, kudos for them for using their real names. Bravo. There is safety in numbers and the more people that come forward and say, hey, not all "stoners" have dreads, are hippies, or whatever you associate in your mind when you hear, so and so smokes a lot of pot. 

You'd be surprised who enjoys recreational and medicinal marijuana and more than likely, amazed at the benefits. 

 

Also like to thank my friend, Teri Robnett of Cannabis Patients Action Network. She's an amazing activist and medical marijuana patient and proof the Cannabis works.
