The Dope on Medical Marijuana: Results of a Survey of Psychiatrists from Psychiatric Times
Date:7/11/2013

NORWALK, Conn., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Psychiatric Times, the country's best read psychiatric publication, recently conducted a survey of its psychiatrist readers to find out their opinions about whether, when—or under what circumstances—they might prescribe medical marijuana for patients with psychiatric disorders.

Respondents issued radically opposing perspectives, such as:

  • "Marijuana should be legal for all and should not require a prescription."
  • "There is no medical necessity to legalize or prescribe something as addictive or toxic as smoked marijuana."

If results of the survey are any indication—and as the quotes above suggest—there is deep and passionate division of opinion, and considerable confusion surrounding rules that now govern legal prescribing

The results of the survey reflect the opinions of nearly 864 psychiatrists who practice in the US.
