California Medical Association Announces Support for Responsible Marijuana Ballot Initiative

California Medical Assocation Logo California’s largest group of doctors, the California Medical Association, is making a strong push for legalized marijuana with responsible parameters and detailed safeguards. See the article below in italics.

Similar legislation efforts are happening across the country. Medical marijuana is currently legal in 23 states, and may be legalized next in these five states:  Mississippi; Missouri; Nebraska; North Carolina; and Ohio.

Medical marijuana is legal in Las Vegas and Nevada. If you are looking for a marijuana dispensary, several Las Vegas dispensaries can be found via Weedmaps. You must have a medical marijuana card from Nevada or any other state to purchase. We are the only state that recognizes medical marijuana cards from other states. Please use medical marijuana responsibly and follow the marijuana laws of each state.

“Today, the California Medical Association (CMA) – representing more than 41,000 physician members statewide – announced its formal endorsement of the ballot measure known as the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act.

Consistent with the organization’s historic White Paper of 2011 urging legalization and regulation of cannabis to allow for greater clinical research, oversight, accountability and quality control, CMA has endorsed the Adult Use of Marijuana Act so:

  • First, the impacts of marijuana in California can be monitored, researched, tightly regulated and, where necessary, mitigated to protect the public health
  • Second, improper diversion by non-symptomatic patients into California’s medical marijuana system can be reduced.”
