Lee addresses a range of topics, including:

  • Smoke Signals: The Great American Pot Story – How a grassroots countercultural movement that began in the 1960s evolved into today’s widespread populist revolt against conventional medicine and extraconstitutional authority.
  • 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?
