Listen to High Truths on Drugs and Addiction, Episode #3 with Dr. Ken Finn
Dr. Ken Finn, editor of the first medical textbook on Cannabis in Medicine and Vice President of the International Academy on Science and Impact of Cannabis (IASIC) joined Dr. Roneet Lev of the High Truths on Drugs and Addiction Episode #3 podcast for a discussion of marijuana research.
Is there enough marijuana research? We always hear the famous words “more research is needed.” While it is true that more research is always needed, always, until the end of time. Today, not tomorrow, we have enough research to disclose the serious health consequences of cannabis use.
Dr. Finn’s textbook includes 20 chapters, 554 pages, 72 authors and 2339 citations. Dr. Bertha Madras, diversion of neurochemistry at Harvard Medical School notes that there are over 15,000 manuscripts on marijuana topics.
