Argument: Marijuana is a good alternative medicine to suit individual needs
Lynn Zimmer, PhD, former Professor Emeritus at the Queens College, City University. 1997 book Marijuana Myths, Marijuana Facts: "The question is not whether marijuana is better than existing medication. For many medical conditions, there are numerous medications available, some of which work better in some patients and some which work better in others. Having the maximum number of effective medications available allows physicians to deliver the best possible medical care to individual patients."
