|Last Friday, California's largest group of doctors announced that it supports legalization on the grounds that California's medical marijuana law has created an "untenable situation for physicians: deciding whether to give patients a substance that is illegal under federal law."
Dr. Donald Lyman, the physician who wrote the California Medical Association's new policy told The Los Angeles Times that only after marijuana is legalized can the medical community undertake the research needed to determine whether the drug is useful for medical purposes. The association is believed to be the first large medical association to call for legalization.
