article imageMedical marijuana: WebMD survey says doctors favor legalization

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 3, 2014 in Health
A survey of 1,544 U.S. doctors published on Wednesday by WebMD finds a majority believe medical marijuana should be legal throughout that country. Most respondents also said medical pot can be of benefit in treating some conditions.
WebMD/Medscape included doctors from 48 states in their survey, many from states that currently allow medical marijuana (21 states and Washington D.C. currently do; Utah is the latest state to join the list) and many from states considering medical marijuana (10 other states are now debating medical marijuana).
Fifty-six percent of those respondents said pot for medicinal usage should be legal all over the United States. However, just 50 percent of doctors in states where it is not legal feel it should be legal in their state. The survey found that 69 percent of the doctors polled said that they believe the drug is helpful when treating some conditions.
The survey has a margin of error of +/- 2.5%.
