"Sadly, this statement proves how completely politicized the FDA has become"

- MPP Director of Government Relations Aaron Houston. "It completely ignores 5,000 years of accumulated evidence of marijuana's therapeutic value, evidence that's been acknowledged by dozens of medical organizations, including the American Public Health Association, the American Academy of HIV Medicine, and the Institute of Medicine, in a report commissioned by the White House. The statement also baldly misstates the nature and purpose of state medical marijuana laws. This statement adds nothing to our knowledge of medical marijuana, but tells us a great deal about the decline of the FDA as an independent scientific agency."
