There American Medical Association made a change in their policy yesterday, allowing for more research on the medical uses of marijuana. It’s about fucking time.  For the longest time, marijuana was considered a drug with no medical use and it was classified as just as bad as many other drugs like LSD, heroin, and alcohol which could not be further from the truth.

The nation’s largest physicians organization, with about 250,000 member doctors, the AMA has maintained since 1997 that marijuana should remain a Schedule I controlled substance, the most restrictive category, which also includes heroin and LSD.

In changing its policy, the group said its goal was to clear the way to conduct clinical research, develop cannabis-based medicines and devise alternative ways to deliver the drug.

“Despite more than 30 years of clinical research, only a small number of randomized, controlled trials have been conducted on smoked cannabis,” said Dr. Edward Langston, an AMA board member, noting that the limited number of studies was “insufficient to satisfy the current standards for a prescription drug product.”

Change is coming. I hope you all can sense it.
