Laura Nelson, M.D.. Chief Medical Officer, Arizona Department of Health Services, and Will Humble, Director, Arizona Department of Health Services posted an “Open Letter to Arizona Physicians on Medical Marijuana” on Mr. Humble’s blog. The text begins:

“Thank you for your interest in the effective implementation of the AZ Medical Marijuana Act.  We realize that many Arizona physicians may not yet feel comfortable with or fully informed about medicinal marijuana.  It is likely that some of your patients will have questions for you about medical marijuana or even request a certification from you.  Given your established relationships with your patients, you are in the best position to determine if medical marijuana is likely to be beneficial for them.  To assist you, we have reviewed numerous articles and sources of information about the medical use of marijuana.”
