Weed, pot, marijuana, cannabis. Whatever you call it, the United States has a long, complicated, and conflicted history with this controversial herb. Is it evil incarnate, or a panacea for all that ails us? In this lively presentation, we will discuss the many facets of cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), hemp, and cannabidiol, including historical, legal, social, and clinical considerations, from local lore to changing statewide and national trends.
