Cannabis is medicine. It should be regulated like other medications and be available by prescription including in botanical form.
Cannabis products should not make unsubstantiated medical claims.Products should be required to meet strict standards of safety, bioavailability, and efficacy.
Dispensaries should operate like pharmacies.They should provide products that are safe and effective.They should not provide medical advice to patients.They should not contradict patients’ clinicians’ orders.
