  • Cannabis and Epilepsy
    Marijuana has a rich history as a medicine for quelling seizures and convulsions going back hundreds of years. In the mid-19th century, the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed cannabis as a treatment for pediatric epilepsy, and subsequent scientific studies have documented the anticonvulsant effects of CBD, THC, and whole plant cannabis.
  • Smoke Signals: A Cannabis History Primer—From Prohibition to Legalization
    A discussion of why the U.S. government banned “the evil weed” during the Great Depression and how a decades-old grassroots countercultural movement for marijuana legalization evolved into today’s widespread populist revolt against conventional medicine and extra-constitutional authority.
