Bridging the Gap: The Role of Science in Policy

In this edition of the Journal our theme is, “Bridging the Gap: The Role of Science in Policy.” The contributions include an original brief that provides a legal perspective on current state marijuana policies and a commentary highlighting the significant problem of diversion of prescription drugs among nurses and other healthcare workers.

In the paper entitled, State Laws Legalizing Marijuana Do Not Make Marijuana Legal Under Federal Law, the author, David Evans, Esq., dives into the conflict between state and federal drug laws as they pertain to marijuana legalization in the U.S. In this piece, the author offers federal statutes and case law to build a compelling case on this issue.

The commentary included in this edition, Drug Diversion in Healthcare, addresses an alarming trend that is seen far too often in the United States. That trend is the diversion of highly addictive prescription medication from healthcare facilities by drug-dependent healthcare professionals.
