Other Resources

According to the Board resolution that was approved by the ADAMHS Board of Directors on April 29, 2015:

The ADAMHS Board for Montgomery County opposes the legalization and commercialization of marijuana for recreational purposes. In addition, legalizing marijuana for medical use should not be decided by legislative or voter initiative. Marijuana should be subject to the same research, consideration, and study as any other potential medicine, under the standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
