Sunday’s San Diego Union-Tribune contains a major debate on whether marijuana should be legalized—on the federal level as well as within the state. The question was triggered by the California Medical Association favoring decriminalization and regulation of cannabis.
“Despite extensive law enforcement and other prohibition-related efforts at the state and federal levels, unregulated cannabis continues to be easily accessible, often at low cost,” says the group in a white paper (attached). “For this and several other reasons further outlined in this white paper, the California Medical Association has recognized that the criminalization of cannabis is a failed public health policy.”
