A resolution passed at the 220-member general council of. :lie Canadian Medical Associa- tion said the drugs are a "haz- ard to health" and "our collec- tive medical opinion is that the adolescent and adult public should now be clearly advised against the informal use of can- nabis, either in the form of marijuana or hashish." The resolution was moved from the floor by Dr. C. J. Schwarz of Vancouver, chair- man of the British Columbia Medical Association's commit- tee on non-medical use of drugs. Although the national associa- tion's committee had not yet completed its review of the fed- eral government's Le Dain com- mission report on the subject, released in May, Chairman Dr. R. M. Lane of Victoria said the council would agree with the portion of the resolution advis- ing against use. "Certainly no one on the coun- would encourage cannabis he said. Council would agree with the discour- agement of its use. Dr. Schwarz told the dele- gates his resolution dealt only with the medical aspects of can- nabis use, not legal aspects as discussed in the Le Dain com- mission report. The idea merely was to make it clear to all individuals tha' marijuana and hashish is harm ful, he said. Canadians had been waiting for such a statemen' from doctors.

A self-review of habits by sere was easy, Dr. Schwarz old a news conference: "Regular users should ask lemselves one question: How as their memory been A motion deferring a vote on IB motion until after the na- onal committee had reported defeated. A majority of the peakers said a definitive state- ment of medical opinion on the rug was needed now. One delegate said it would be hypocritical" of the 'ion to oppose cannabis in such strong statement when they id not similarly oppose alcohol nd tobacco. However, Dr. Lane told the ews conference that the lember association has op- osed both of "these drugs." An ven stronger attack on tobacco s "a public health hazard with- ut equal" had been made to a louse of Commons' committee hearings on smoking. The association's views on al- :ohol were contained in its brief o the Le Dain commission, he aid. In the brief, it said that al- ohol use also was a drug prob- em and opposed its widespread use. Two recommendations pro- posed by the medical committee loncerning traffic signs and sig- tals and traffic codes were jassed at the Thursday session, 'he ecommenda lions called for more uniformity across the ountry. Doctors also recommended in- creased use of automobile seat and diagonal restraints. Dr. Lane said these have proven to reduce deaths and in- juries in traffic accidents. The CMA also re-endorsed the use of breath analysis devices o determine the amount of al- cohol taken by a car driver, with the added condition that all guidelines for their use be cor- rectly followed. A recommendation was de- leted that the association 'should express concern" over he practice of some courts to allow convicted drinking drivi- ers to-drive for business pur- joses after their licenses had Deen revoked. I Delegates said the association should not place itself in the ition of advising courts what should be done in passing sen- tences. Alderman raps work of chamber EDMONTON (CP) The Chamber of Commerce was told its public image "stinks" and it has neglected to use its business expertise for the de- velopment of the city. Holding up a slim folder of chamber submissions made to city council, Aid. Cec Purves said "I think this is on indict- ment of the chamber." He said the chamber has access to many specialists through their business mem- berships. That type of expertise should be harnessed by the chamber. Mr. Purves said next year taxes would increase again be- cause of reassessment and bus- inessmen would get "clobber- ed." Constructive suggestions from the chamber could alle- viate the problem. Bob Chapman, a former chamber president, replied that the chamber had ap- proached city hall many times and had been rebuffed. Another former chamber president, Ross McBain, said he couldn't recall the city ever seeking the organization's ad- vice. Mr. Purves, a veteran alder- man and long time chamber member, agreed the city often responded negatively to busi- ness suggestions, but said the chamber should not give up trying.
