Sounds like another government funded 'study' with a pre determined outcome! These so called 'scientists' should be ashamed!

Hmm... the headline doesn't match the content - imagine that - to wit:

"The researchers, working on behalf of the state Department of Health Services, which oversees the state's medical-marijuana program, reviewed dozens of scientific studies related to marijuana use for the four medical conditions and determined that most of the research was of little value in weighing the medicinal risks and benefits."

It's not a "dispute" - it's a "We're trying to base this on science and don't have enough info".

The evidence is in and has been for a long time. These so called 'scientists' chose to ignore facts for political purposes.
