Flawed MJA Poll misleads on medicinal Cannabis

May 31, 2016 — Dear Supporters,
Please vote in this poll and voice your opinion, on the following article that has come out yesterday in the Medical Journal of Australia (MJA).
“Slow and steady on medicinal cannabis” Monday 30 May 2016

https://www.mja.com.au/insight/2016/20/slow-and-steady-medicinal-cannabis

Scroll down to the bottom of the article and VOTE in the ‘poll’ at the bottom of the article.

Our medicinal Cannabis advocacy organization ‘United In Compassion’ (UIC) is disappointed a Medical Journal of Australia (MJA) poll currently being conducted, fails to acknowledge significant international evidence and trial results that support the efficacy of medicinal Cannabis.

UIC has just conducted a successful 2nd Medicinal Cannabis Symposium in Sydney, featuring international Doctors and scientists with specialist knowledge in the area, supported by the Premier of NSW Mike Baird and many high ranking officials.

We are contacting the MJA seeking a right of reply.

Of course we all support appropriate scientific studies and clinical trials, but this should not delay or prevent the establishment of an effective compassionate access scheme to provide Medicinal Cannabis to Australians who are suffering today.

I am disappointed that the MJA didn’t see fit to contact UIC or attend our Symposium which was specifically targeted to the education of Australian Doctors by way of the content provided.

Moreover, it is also disappointing that the poll the MJA has run is significantly flawed, as its simplistic questions fail to acknowledge the significant evidence from international studies and trials.

Please voice your opinion on their poll!
