Dr. Mitch Earleywine: Understanding Marijuana

Today on the Grow Show Kyle Kushman is joined by CannbisRadio.com’s own Dr. Mitch Earleywine. Mitch Earleywine, Ph.D. is Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York at Albany. He received his bachelor’s degree from Columbia University and his doctorate from Indiana University. Mitch has over 100 publications in scientific journals on addictions. He has received research grants from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism as well as the Alcoholic Beverage Medical Research Foundation.

Mitch worked as an alcohol researcher for years, and then began teaching an undergraduate course on drugs and human behavior. Teaching a large group of college students the dangers of binge drinking was an exciting aspiration of his. The students, however, were far more interested in marijuana. Mitch reviewed the relevant research to avoid spreading any misinformation. This eventually led to his book “Understanding Marijuana”. The class helped Mitch earn commendation for his teaching, including the University’s coveted General Education Teaching Award.
