Friedman: Follow the doctor’s orders

Sophomore Gabrielle Friedman, a Hatchet columnist, urges GW to revisit the campus-wide ban on medical marijuana.

With the passing of Initiative 59 this spring, medical marijuana became legal in the District. Finally, the D.C. Council realized the lunacy of keeping the substance illegal for medical purposes. But GW administrators clearly still fear the reefer, because they have banned the use or possession of medical marijuana on campus.

While I can sympathize with the University in its mission to keep illicit substances off campus, I can’t agree with denying a student with a valid prescription the right to do something that would be perfectly legal anywhere else in the city.
