Dr Farid Youssef on cannabis

Dr Farid Youssef unmasks cannabis

Dr Farid F. Youssef: “I am in no form or fashion advocating the smoking of cannabis, a practice that is associated with numerous well documented severe health risks. Neither do I support its legalization. However the effects of cannabis are the result of the body, and the brain in particular, possessing its own endogenous cannabinoid system. We are seeking to understand this system, how its works, how it can be modified and how targeted drug delivery systems can be developed that maximize clinical benefits and minimize unwanted side effects.”

To me, this quote was the highlight of Dr Youssef’s UWI Today article.
