Dr. Jonathan Lee, is a triple board certified physician in internal medicine, addiction medicine and psychiatry and immediate past President of Virginia ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine). At last month’s press conference in Richmond, Virginia Dr. Lee discussed the severe mental health disorders that THC marijuana is triggering in young people. He was among the many medical professionals who testified in General Assembly committees against marijuana legalization. On Jan. 19, he testified on SB 1406 at the Subcommittee on Marijuana — Committee on Rehabilitation and Social Services. In spite of his testimony the Virginia legislature is moving forward to make Virginia a commercial cannabis state.
