A group representing women from more than 600 U.S. Reform temples is calling for a study of whether marijuana can provide relief for certain medical conditions. In a resolution passed at its 42nd biennial assembly in Orlando, Fla., Women of Reform Judaism also urged elected officials to support legislation to reclassify marijuana as a “prescribed controlled substance” so that it can be used for research and given to critically ill patients.
