David Bearman M.D. – History of Cannabinoid Medicine – CannaCosta 2015

Dr. David Bearman, a United States physician with 40 years of experience working in drug abuse treatment programs and other medical roles, gave an intimate history of medical cannabis throughout the world. He also described how its criminalization back in 1937 was driven by racist and profit motivations, rather than science. In fact, the American Medical Association was the only medical authority to speak out against the prohibition of cannabis, but their input was almost entirely dismissed. Dr. Bearman also described his experiences recommending cannabis as a medicine in California, and the positive results he has seen when cannabis is used properly.
