David Casarett: Stoned Pt 2

Today on Just Say Know Ryan Hunt continues a two episode journey with David Casarett MD MA, physician and professor at Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. Ryan and Dr. Casarett talk about his new book Stoned, about his involvement in cannabis medicine.

In Stoned, palliative care physician Dr. David Casarett sets out to do anything—including experimenting on himself—to find evidence of marijuana’s medical potential. He smears mysterious marijuana paste on his legs and samples pot wine. He poses as a patient at a seedy California clinic and takes lessons from an artisanal hash maker. In conversations with researchers, doctors, and patients around the world he learns how marijuana works—and doesn’t—in the real world.
