THE DOCTOR IS IN: A MEDICAL PERSPECTIVE ON CANNABIS
Even though medical cannabis programs are now operational in 33 states, many physicians and patients remain unclear on the circumstances under which medical cannabis has been effective within specific patient populations. Dr. Rebecca Siegel, who is in the process of writing a book regarding the effects of cannabis on the human brain, has examined intricacies regarding the use of medical cannabis from both an academic and practical perspective. Dr. Siegel will map her own journey from skeptic to expert, drawing on clinical lessons from her own practice and the latest medical research.
