Clinical Review: 3000 Cases; Medical Uses of Cannabis in California 1993-2000
Abstract: The legalization of cannabis for medical use in California in 1996 has induced thousands of patients to seek physician approval for self-adopted treatment strategies. In the same period, legal pressure from the federal government has constrained many physicians from formally recommending cannabis for the treatment of conditions other than AIDS and cancer. The author's willingness to take patients at their word and to risk governmental scrutiny has made him the "doctor of last resort" for those seeking to use cannabis legally as a medication. The result is a unique set of data based on interviews with more than 3,000 patients.
