This website is dedicated to patients, caregivers, physicians, health care professionals, families, decision makers, and the general community. We at AAMC hope that the information and links prove educational.

AAMC recognizes that under the Controlled Substances Act, possession, use, distribution, sales, furnishing, cultivation, and transportation of cannabis are Federal offenses despite State Medical Cannabis laws.

Readers should take caution to not violate Federal law. AAMC does not sell or furnish any cannabis products. What we offer is education. Our own experiences, plainly stated, offer the best hope that decision makers will finally end the prohibition of medical cannabis.

AAMC is not responsible for the actions of others including those "linked" in this website. Nor is AAMC responsible for opinions expressed in this website other than to state our policy that dialogue and discussion can only be healthy.

Dr. Jay R. Cavanaugh
