A “Viewpoint” article in the Journal of the American Medical Association June 16 is entitled “Medical Board Expectations for Physicians Recommending Marijuana.” Authors
The authors sought input from”interested stakeholders such as the American Society of Addiction Medicine” before the regulations were unanimously adopted by state medical boards at the Federation’s annual meeting on April 30, 2016. Input was not sought from the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, whose members have vast experience monitoring cannabis use by patients. SCC MDs are hereby invited to weigh in to firstname.lastname@example.org, on or off the record. Today’s recommendations could become tomorrow’s constraints.
