    From the days of "Reefer Madness" until the timing of Proposition 19 with the "Legalization of Marijuana Initiative" on the ballot last November, the controversies swirling around not only the recreational use, but also the medical use of marijuana, particularly in frail, elderly geriatric patients with clinically significant weight loss (and cachexia), has been fraught with controversy. Even though the ballot initiative from 2010 went down in defeat on November 2, 2010, rumblings of some of the authors bringing another, more "targeted" CA initiative in 2012 are regaining momentum.

    A disturbing trend has emerged involving criminal charges being levied against family caregivers treating end-of-life (EOL) elders with dementia.

    Foot and ankle injuries due to motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) present unique challenges to the astute foot and ankle physician. Even more challenging than the pathology, however, is ability to return to pre-injury level. Published medical literature provides strong evidence for risk of post-traumatic arthritis after a heel bone (calcaneus) fracture - this post-MVA condition can manifest as residual deformity and resulting arthritis, thus precluding the ability to rapidly return to pre-accident levels. Hence it is imperative that an erudite foot and ankle clinician ascertain the appropriate treatment and long-term prognosis of foot and ankle injuries due to MVAs.
