Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Gatehouse Academy is pleased to have received the news today that a recent article on medical marijuana that was written and submitted by Leah Briick, COO of Gatehouse Academy, will be published in the next publication of the Visions newsletter by the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers.
Briick’s article to the NAATP community is a call to action to address, as a professional community, the various considerations that are posed by the emergence of medicinal marijuana suppliers, prescriptions, and patients in the various states where it is now permitted. In response to the recent ratification of medical marijuana in the state of Arizona, where Briick’s establishment operates, she poses questions about how her center will interact with and write new policy in response to this coexistence with the institution of medical marijuana. Many people are treated for marijuana addiction every year in America, and outside of these aforementioned special circumstances, it is seen as a dangerous and illegal drug.
