THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MEDICAL MARIJUANA” according to current U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams. Response by: NORML Atty. Steven Groce:
I think it could also be argued that ALL Use of Marijuana, is Medical, because isn’t it true that any use of Marijuana, is based on a perceived need, whatever that may be? If one uses Marijuana to relieve Stress, or deal with Pain, or to simply Chill Out, those are all perceived needs that one could also take a variety of other prescription medications to deal with, rather than Marijuana. Let’s remember, there is a prescription drug for everything, Opiates, Anti-Depressants, Anti-Anxiety drugs, etc., etc. Therefore, ANY perceived need, for using Marijuana, can be argued to be Medical.
