Edward Bednarczyk, an expert in pharmacy practice, can speak to the media about issues affecting pharmacists and their field.

He has been a passionate voice in the debate on legalizing marijuana for medicinal uses. His stance is that while the FDA should reclassify marijuana to make it more accessible to researchers, more research needs to be done before society can truly understand the risks and benefits of the drug.

“Just like any other drug product, we shouldn't rush things to market until the expected, standard for safety has been met,” he says.

Bednarczyk’s past research has investigated a variety of topics, from tobacco sales in pharmacies to treatment of headaches.
