AMA adopts policies on marijuana, gay rights

Associated Press, November 12, 2009

The American Medical Association has voted to oppose the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, and declared that gay marriage bans contribute to health disparities based on evidence showing that married couples are more likely to have health insurance. The AMA is also urging the government to consider reclassifying marijuana from a Schedule I controlled substance in order to clear the way for clinical research and alternative ways to deliver the drug.
