Nurse leaders support legalization of medical marijuana and consider nurses and nursing organizations as pivotal to patients’ acceptance of, access to, and use of medical marijuana, according to a recent study. Published in the July issue of Journal of Nursing Regulation, the authors conducted a national, online, cross-sectional survey of 811 nurse leaders recruited through AONL. Nearly 90% of nurse leaders believed people should be able to use marijuana legally to treat their medical conditions, and 67% thought nurses should facilitate access to medical marijuana for patients who would benefit from its use. Nearly 80% of respondents agreed that state and national nursing organizations should help to decrease the stigma associated with marijuana, and 85% felt education about medical marijuana should be included in pre-licensure nursing education programs. AONL was a partner in this study.
