They Said It On Marijuana, Quotable Saturday, Part XIV

Because we are always calling for marijuana to be examined on scientific grounds, we are always happy to see scientists endorse it.

Dr. Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon and professor at Columbia University, recently declared his shift on marijuana:

I grew up like most of my generation believing that marijuana was something Satan was throwing at Americans, a communist plot. But I think most of us have come around to the believe that marijuana is hugely beneficial when used correctly for medicinal purposes.

There you have it. From moral bugaboo to “hugely beneficial.”
