Letters to the Editor
Vancouver Sun

Dear Editor,

Physicians for a Smoke Free Canada recently made an outrageous claim in the
Vancouver Sun that “marijuana is more dangerous than tobacco.” Such claims
are unsupported by science or by common experience and cannot be allowed to
stand unchallenged.

Millions of people have smoked marijuana for decades, but where are the
bodies? The fact is than not one death has ever been attributed to
marijuana, nor has a link to cancer ever been shown. In fact, numerous
peer-reviewed studies have confirmed marijuana’s ability to shrink tumors.

The American Medical Marijuana Association (AMMA) challenges Physicians for
a Smoke Free Canada to a scientific debate on this issue. At the very
least, we would be happy to provide the Vancouver Sun and Health Canada with
dozens of scientific studies to debunk the fraudulent claims of Physicians
for a Smoke Free Canada. Until then, the physicians, scientists, nurses,
patients and dedicated members of AMMA urge Health Canada to ignore the
misinformed and unscientific opinions of these reefer madness physicians.
