Iowa Board of Pharmacy Seeks Insight From Medical Marijuana Advocacy Group

Daily Dose 2010-04-08 0 comments

As the Iowa Board of Pharmacy (BOP) listens to Patients Out Of Time, a medical marijuana patient advocacy group made up of physicians on the medicinal benefits of medical cannabis.  Al Byrne, a member of the group, delivered some 50,000 pages of medical marijuana research supporting the effectiveness of marijuana as medicine, as part of a larger presentation to the Board.  This extensive compilation of research is exactly the type of platform necessary for this type of dialogue because the Iowa BOP called public hearings throughout the state to help determine whether a reclassification of the plant so that marijuana may be used for research and treatment.

Patients Out of Time will be holding their bi-annual medical marijuana conference this coming April 16-18 in Warrick, Rhode Island.
