To provide community leadership in planning, developing, and supporting high quality, innovative, and accountable mental health and addiction services and strategies so that all Montgomery County residents can achieve wellness.
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).
The Board supports controlled research into the benefits of cannabis-based medicines which follow the basic tenets of good medicine, and which would provide
scientifically-valid support for the conditions it is proven to help; controlled strength and purity; appropriate dosage levels; and safe means of administration.
