On Nov.20th,1983, Florida stockbroker Irvin Rosenfeld began recieving 300 joints per month of U.S. government-grown marijuana, under the Investigational New Drugs (I.N.D.) program (formed in 1976 when Robert Randall sued the Federal government for access to medical marijuana). As the program was closed to new patients in 1991, Irv is now one of only five legal Cannabis patients in America.
Irv has a rare disease called multiple congenital cartilaginous exostoses, which causes extremely painful bone tumors all over his body. Opiate pain relivers and muscle relaxants (to prevent tearing of muscle) were never adaquate, but Medical Cannabis has made it possible for him to lead a normal and productive life.
Speaking to the Second Clinical Cannabis Therapeutics Conference in Portland, OR in 2002, Irvin was part of the "Chronic Cannabis Use in the Compassionate I.N.D. Program Study", by Dr. Ethan Russo of Missoula, MT, initiated by Patients Out of Time.
The "Missoula Study" examined four of the I.N.D. patients for any negative effects of long-term marijuana use - something the government refused to do with their own patients and data.

Irvin Rosenfeld has called for establishing new protocols for medical Cannabis patients under the Compassionate I.N.D., providing data useful for removing marijuana from FDA's "Schedule One - having no medical value" classification. View Irvin and legal marijuana patient(glaucoma)Elvy Musikka adressing these issues again in 2004 at 3rd Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics:
