Montana NORML - Medical Marijuana
According to the AIDS Action Council, the American Academy of Family Physicians, American Medical Student Association, the New England Journal of Medicine, American Medical Association, and dozens of other prestigious medical organizations, marijuana may be an effective treatment for numerous health conditions, including glaucoma, AIDS wasting syndrome, the side effects of chemotherapy, multiple sclerosis, and chronic pain.
A national survey in November of 1997 revealed that 62 percent of respondents favored legalizing marijuana strictly for medical use. Surveys conducted by ABC and CBS earlier that summer revealed an even higher percentage of pro-medical marijuana Americans.
Montana NORML vigorously supports the medical marijuana movement.
