California Medical Board
The Medical Board of California marked a milestone for California consumers and physicians by adopting a statement clarifying that the recommendation of medical marijuana by physicians in their medical practice will not have any effect against their physician’s license if they follow good medical practice.

“The intent of the statement is to clearly and succinctly reassure physicians that if they use the same proper care in recommending medical marijuana to their patents as they use would any other medication or treatment, their activity will be viewed by the Medical Board just as any other appropriate medical intervention.”
