Medical Marijuana Position- Final

As members of the Idaho Criminal Justice Commission (ICJC) with the vision of “collaborating for a safer Idaho,” it is incumbent upon us to address the issue of marijuana legalization based on current research and data. It is clear from the numerous, credible research studies regarding marijuana that the use of this drug is linked to public health and safety dangers. Therefore, the ICJC is opposed to the legalization of marijuana and efforts to approve marijuana as medicine outside of the scientifically rigorous Federal Drug Administration (FDA) process.
