JULY 1991 - 53% OF ONCOLOGISTS SURVEYED SAY CANNABIS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE BY PRESCRIPTION
“A random-sample, anonymous survey of the members of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) was conducted in spring 1990 measuring the attitudes and experiences of American oncologists concerning the antiemetic use of marijuana in cancer chemotherapy patients.
A surprising proportion of respondents (432, 44%) said they had recommended marijuana to at least one patient…
Six hundred eight respondents (63%) agreed with the statement affirming the efficacy of marijuana in the treatment of emesis… and 77 respondents (8%) disagreed…
Of the 599 respondents with opinions, 53% favored making marijuana available by prescription.”
