  1. Activist Questions Speaker’s Cannabis “Bias” | Bernews.com | February 26, 2014
  1. sage says:

    Funny, I have heard of Dr. Andrea Barton before, her former job was to oppose herb despite the facts, and unless she has taken a complete u-turn, she is still going around misleading people. In any case she will be preaching to the choir talking to our doctors.

    • YADON says:

      Great work as usual sage. The Bermudian public needs to be aware of this. Put this in the main stories so we are all aware of this campaign of misinformation.

  2. ABC says:

    I hope that we’ll be able to have a good discussion of medical marijuana in the Illinois legislature this year — without the distraction of Andrea Barthwell

    lmao

  3. more than enough says:

    i hope this will highlight the actual medical usage, and not be the same old bs anti herb propoganda.

      A legislator in the US called Dr. Barthwell (who made a paid career of 100% opposing medical cannabis) a “travelling con show”.

      She is hardly the appropriate speaker for Bermuda’s medical community, and Hospitals Board, to be addressing medical cannabis.

      In North America, 72% of physicians are willing to recommend medical cannabis. In Bermuda, it’s essentially 0%, so we’re bring her in /why/, exactly?
