On Friday, Mayor Bloomberg called medical marijuana “one of the greatest hoaxes of all time.” From a mayor who has generally promoted public health policies based on sound medical and epidemiological evidence, such a comment is puzzling. It flies in the face of science.

 

Bloomberg’s remarks came one day after the New England Journal of Medicine revealed the results of a doctors’ poll asking whether marijuana should be used to help alleviate symptoms in a woman with metastatic breast cancer: 76% said yes.

 

The Journal’s findings are consistent with public polling in New York: 82% of all New Yorkers believe it’s a good idea to allow seriously or terminally ill people to use marijuana if recommended by a physician.

 

Marijuana has been shown to relieve pain, muscle spasms and spasticity, as well as stimulate appetite and weight gain in patients with wasting syndromes. The evidence comes from medium and large, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trials — the gold standard for medical research.
