Phoenix, AZ A majority of Arizonans oppose a federal policy that punishes doctors who prescribe marijuana.
"Arizonans, like Americans everywhere, want the federal government to stop prohibiting access to medical marijuana," NORML Foundation Executive Director Allen St. Pierre said. He noted that Arizonans voted on two consecutive occasions to allow doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to patients.   The statewide survey showed 66 percent of respondents opposed federal sanctions for doctors who approve marijuana therapy. Federal law permits justice department officials to revoke the license of doctors who prescribe marijuana, regardless of state law, but constitutional protections allow physicians to discuss medical marijuana with their patients.   For more information, please contact Allen St. Pierre or Paul Armentano of The NORML Foundation   (202) 483-8751. To view the results of previous medical marijuana polls, please visit:

It's amazing that this state has Senator John McCain who is against medicinal marijuana. His letter to me stated that "It is a fundamental function of government to protect the citizenry from dangerous substances." I just wonder if his constituents know of his stance on the issue.
