New York City Mayor Michael “Nanny” Bloomberg thinks medical marijuana is a hoax, but as far as I know he’s never been to medical school, which is obvious based on the results of a new survey that found more than three-quarters of physicians would prescribe it to their patients if they could.

The results of the study, which were published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that 76 percent of physicians polled would prescribe pot to patients who were experiencing pain from cancer.

According to the Journal, a non-scientific survey held in “Clinical Decisions, an interactive feature in which experts discuss a controversial topic and readers vote and post comments,” received 1,466 votes from 56 states and provinces in the U.S. and the Americas, as well as 72 countries.

Participants were presented with the case of a 68-year-old woman named Marilyn who had been experiencing symptoms from metastatic breast cancer.

They were also given a pair of opinion pieces that were written for doctors arguing for and against the use of medical marijuana.
