According to a recent WebMD survey, 69% of physicians in the U.S. believe cannabis has legitimate medical benefits, and 56% favor its legalization for medical purposes.

“The medical community is clearly saying they support using marijuana as a potential treatment option for any number of medical problems”, says WebMD Chief Medical Editor Michael Smith. “Regardless of past restrictions, a majority of patients and doctors see marijuana as delivering real benefits to treat patients”.

According to the survey:

  • 69% say it can help with certain treatments and conditions.
  • 67% say it should be a medical option for patients.
  • 56% support making it legal nationwide.
  • 50% of doctors in states where it is not legal say it should be legal in their states.
  • 52% of doctors in states considering new laws say it should be legal in their states.

The poll surveyed 1,544 physicians, and has a margin of error of +/- 2.5%.

      Heh. Some are just OLD and didn’t even try to stay current once they left medical school.
      As for the rest, they simply enjoy paid weekend vacations at nice resorts hosted by drug companies.

    Personally, I’ve found it to be higher. (PI) Those I’ve come across (I’m in poor health and see MANY doctors) have even “prescribed” it. The others turned out to be assholes and I fired them for a variety of reasons. Anybody got anything?
