Lee addresses a range of topics, including:

- Beyond THC: Bringing Back CBD – The extraordinary therapeutic properties of cannabidiol (CBD), a nonpsychoactive component of marijuana that doesn’t make people feel high.
- The Endocannabinoid System for Beginners - Human brain receptors triggered by marijuana regulate the immune system, glucose metabolism, neurogenesis (the creation of new brain cells), and many other physiological processes.
- Cannabis Therapeutics and Holistic Healing - Acupuncture, osteopathy, massage and other “alternative” healing modalities are mediated by the same brain receptors that respond pharmacologically to marijuana.
- Cannabis and Young people: A Clinical Perspective - How dangerous is marijuana for children? Why do so many adolescents smoke pot? Cannabis and ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, and addiction.
- Occupy Medical Marijuana – Legalization is Not Enough! Is marijuana legalization inevitable? What will a post-prohibition society look like?
