QALY's (quality -adjusted life years) on Medical Marijuana

Ethics in public health course *report on potential issues (ethical, political, legal, and/or economic) concerning the use  of QALY’s as a measure of evidence in public health practice and delivery (with respect to Medical Marijuana).  Your report should explore real life situations whenever possible, and include discussion regarding ethical theories/principles- such as social justice and equity.  *QALY however, is NOT to be confused with simply adding years to one’s life expectancy, and comes with its own controversies.  For example, some claim that a QALY approach can lead to unjust social distribution, as it is calculated based-upon the capacity to benefit, rather than actual need.  For instance, two populations with similar cancer rates may be competing for federal funding to implement a health promotion project that has been proven to lower cancer incidence.  One population also has a high rate of disability, while the other does not.  The QALY approach in this case would favor the healthier population, as they would have the best potential for an increased “quality” of life.  Therefore, a question of social justice and equity may be raised. ** I have attached below a SAMPLE work on what the paper should be like **a PDF file with some explanation of what QALY'S are ** Some sources (websites) that may be helpful in writing this paper. You may use Sources of your choosing *** please note that if the topic of medical marijuana can not be used to support QALYs you may pick a different topic( not the same topic from the sample paper) http://slatestarcodex.com/2014/01/05/marijuana-much-more-than-you-wanted-to-know/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23072659 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC317370/ http://www.celforpharma.com/insight/do-you-know-what-qaly-and-how-calculate-it
