Survey: Some Minnesota doctors remain leery of medical marijuana


Many doctors remain leery of Minnesota’s expanding medical marijuana program.

When Dr. Charles Reznikoff, a member of the state’s Task Force on Medical Cannabis Therapeutic Research, sent out an informal survey on the program to hundreds of fellow physicians around the state, the responses were overwhelmingly negative.

By a wide margin, the 262 physicians who responded said they did not know enough about medical marijuana to discuss the risks and benefits with a patient; the majority opposed the idea of expanding Minnesota’s program to pain patients; and most thought the program just meant more hassle and paperwork for them.
