“Debunking Myths Associated With Cannabis”

November 23, 2017

Bermuda College will be looking to debunk the myths associated with cannabis by examining the topic through an academic lens, with a lecture set for November 30th.

The main focus of the lecture, “Debunking the Myths Associated with Cannabis: an Academic Perspective” is the medical application of cannabis as presented by Dr. Marcia Williams, of the University of Technology, Jamaica.

Dr. Williams has presented and authored various articles on the topic, including “Marijuana Legislative Changes in Jamaica and the Effects on the Pharmaceutical Industry”, “Cannabis Sativa and Type 2 Diabetes”, and “Cannabis Sativa: Recent Developments and Implications for the Health Professional” [presented locally in 2014 during Bermuda Pharmacy Week], and more.

She will be joined by a panel of local medical professionals, including a naturopathic doctor and a pharmaceutical specialist.

The lecture will take place Thursday, November 30 at 6 p.m. in the Hallett Hall lecture theatre [H100]. The event is free and open to the public

    This is a very timely lecture and a great step towards freedom from backward-thinking marijuana myths.

  3. Ummm what says:

    How can you be both a naturopathic and a doctor

      Well, I am not sure about the above person but many many doctors hold double degrees all over the world. You go to one school and get your degree you then go to another school and get another degree.

    Your are going into surgery and the medical staff smells of weed ,then what ?

    • The Original Truth™ says:

      It would be the same that applies to if they smelled of booze. This is why these type of lectures are needed. You and many others have been fed ideas about cannabis lead on prejudice instead of facts.

      FACT: The most common drug abused statistically by medical staff are prescription pain killers. You’d have to be a K9 to smell those on a them. ;)

    As a drug free individual I would bet on myself in a contest against a pot head any day of the week – by any measure. Acedemics, sports, creativity you name it…and especially income!! – earned legally anyways. Bring it on.

    • The Original Truth™ says:

      Unless you’re a Teetotalist than you are not truly drug free. If you are than good on ya but still you’re statement shows you’re not ignorance free. Though excuse my ignorance if I’m wrong and you are a better athlete and earn more than Eben Britton or other pro “pot head” athletes. You’re probably better at cedemics than Kary Mullis also. :D

      Ever won any Olympic gold medals for swimming or snowboarding?

    • Sara says:

      What is the point of this? To show how much better you are than another group of people? Can you say ego???

    • sage says:

      “Drug free” my a$$.

    • sage says:

      I can at least spell academics correctly, genius.

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      Michael Phelps can swim better than you any day of the week…

    • If you are more famous then Bob Marley, Snoop Dog and Paul Mccartney, Ill consider reasoning with your comment.
