Federal medical marijuana/Compassionate IND patient George McMahon passed away Saturday Nov. 30, according to a report on Facebook quoting a family member.
On March 16, 1990, George became the fifth patient admitted to the IND program. Jacki Rickert was approved in December 1990. Interestingly enough, had I been able to locate a doctor willing to deal with the bureaucratic hurdles, I might have been approved in the late 1970s. Robert Randall and my federal representatives sent me copies of the application, but my private practice doctor was unwilling to take on such a burden.
