The uncertainty and inconsistency surrounding federal and state laws for medical marijuana use, distribution, and research is placing unnecessary obstacles in the way of suffering patients, their families, and the people trying to help them.

In The Medical Marijuana Mess, senior fellow John Hudak illustrates the extreme dysfunction of medical marijuana policy through two different narratives: the Collins’, who make the painful choice to split up their family in order to treat their daughter’s debilitating epilepsy with CBD oil, and Rabbi Jeffrey Kahn, a medical marijuana dispensary owner who encountered unimaginable obstacles, scrutiny, and personal liability in order to help other patients in need.

And so, in December 2013, Beth and Jennifer said goodbye to Patrick and to Jennifer’s older sister, Alexandra. They moved to Colorado, joining thousands of other people who’d gone there wanting to avail themselves of one version or another of this taboo treatment: marijuana-­based medicine. Their hope? That Colorado cannabis would do what prescription drugs could not—­treat Jennifer’s epilepsy.

An Ancient and Honorable Medical Tradition

Patients like Jennifer Collins seek out medical marijuana every day. In the United States, it is currently only available in certain states, for certain people, and under specific conditions, though
