"It's an uncomfortable position for doctors," he said. "It is an open question whether cannabis is useful or not. That question can only be answered once it is legalized and more research is done. Then, and only then, can we know what it is useful for." Los Angeles Times, October 15, 2011
Simple! There has been very little mainstream education. Historically, marijuana (also called Cannabis) has been labeled as an addictive, dangerous gateway drug. The truth is.....the facts don't support that belief.
Did you know there has never been a documented lethal overdose from marijuana? There are a lot of other facts that may surprise you.
The I DO campaign is a grassroots outreach that keeps things simple. We support medical marijuana legalization, regulation and fairly controlled production and distribution.
It's not a campaign about repealing prohibition nor does it support full legalization. It's a campaign dedicated to the patients and researchers who need access to a valuable medical alternative to opiate pain medication.
