The legalisation of cannabis around the world offers a real-world experiment to assess cannabis’s risks and benefits – and it suggests that the risks have been exaggerated, says Professor Nutt. A 5,000-year-old Chinese document has described the plant as useful in treating more than 100 conditions. By focusing on the most critical purported harms--driving, pregnancy, addictiveness, memory--and by focusing on the most commonly cited medical benefits--relieving chronic pain, sleep, anxiety, PTSD, autism, and cancer--Seeing Through the Smoke will help patients, parents, doctors, health experts, regulators, and politicians move beyond biased perceptions and arrive at a shared reality towards cannabis.

David broadcasts widely to the general public both on radio and television including BBC science and public affairs programmes on therapeutic as well as illicit drugs, their harms and their classification.Moreover, most recreational users use skunk, which, because of the high THC levels, is more addictive than medical cannabis.
