41st Annual Osler Lectureship

Lecture: 100 years of cannabis: a journey from William Osler to the modern era.

The last century has witnessed a radical transformation in society’s perceptions of the herb Cannabis sativa. Scientific research and political initiatives that would have been unthinkable two decades ago have identified the substance’s mechanisms of action as well as its medical benefits and risks. Yet even as Canada enters a new era of non-medical cannabis use, cannabis continues to spark polarizing,incendiary debate. This talk explores the journey of cannabis from plant to policy, and the enduring controversies that challenge the expansion of cannabis research today.

Speaker: Dr. Mark A. Ware, Chief Medical Officer, Canopy Growth Corporation, Associate Professor in Anesthesia and Family Medicine, McGill University

Time: 18:00

Venue: McIntyre Medical Building, Charles F. Martin Amphitheatre, Room 504, 3655 Promenade Sir William Osler, Montreal, QC, H3G 1Y6
