Because the witness, Janet E. Joy, was invited by the Subcommittee to testify on short notice, there was no time to submit a prepared statement. As a result, the witness based her comments to the Subcommittee on the Executive Summary of the Institute of Medicine report for which she was the study director, “Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base.”
