III Proposition Opponents Goals and Needs- Continued
More Needs
Provide guidance and assistance to law enforcement in California
and Arizona
Protect the FDA protocol for the scientific based designation of
“medicines”
Develop and implement national communications strategy (based
on the reframed issue) with a rapid response element similar to the
proponents’ MAP Internet approach
Involve the medical community (which defeated the mid ’80’s
attempt to use heroin medically); at present appears a sizable
faction supports marijuana for the terminally ill, why? Tension
between individual treatment issues and developing a common
good public policy need to be resolved
