“A debt of gratitude is owed to the plethora of Bermudians who boldly shared their personal medical struggles during last evening’s information session.

“The feedback received from those in attendance made it patently clear that there has been a positive and decisive shift on how cannabis is viewed in our community; our community is to be commended for recognizing that medicinal cannabis has the potential to provide relief to a plethora of suffering Bermudians who live in some of the most difficult and painful circumstances we can experience as individuals.

Dr. Debra Kimless said, “I would like to thank North Shore Medical, Dr. Kyjuan Brown, Mr. Eron Hill and the people of Bermuda for the opportunity to present an evidence-based, fact-packed lecture about the science of medical cannabis and how and why it should be available as a therapeutic tool.

“It was an electrifying evening. I am both grateful and impressed by the people of Bermuda who attended the lecture. Many asked open and candid questions which allowed us as a group to examine the myths behind cannabis and shine a light on the truth.

“I am impressed with and applaud the people who were brave enough to share their personal stories of their health struggles and successes with medical cannabis to support the importance of a regulated medical cannabis program.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful, enriched island of Bermuda and its people and I am confident that after last night the momentum of learning about medical cannabis will continue,” she added.

“I hope that the attendees will spread the information they learned to friends, family, physicians and other health care workers to spark interest in more medical cannabis educational opportunities.

“My hope for the people of Bermuda is that there will soon be a regulated medical cannabis program so patients will have access to safe medical cannabis and physicians are confident in the quality and consistency of the products as they are with any other medical therapy.

“I am grateful for the privilege to participate in this endeavor and look forward to returning to assist in furthering the knowledge of the people of Bermuda.”

    I am not taking any sides in this debate, but I would suggest that people read the warnings that various US Federal agencies gave to Canadians last year. The US Government doesn’t care if weed is legal here or in Canada, it is not legal in the US (for the most part).

    Excellent lecture! Should be televised or put on social media. Especially because most people think Cannabis and getting ‘High is synonymous.

    Cannabis may be able to be grown here for MEDICAL reasons in the beginning.

      Why can’t we set trends rather than be strung along copying everyone else’s model? The thing is that there is no valid logical, scientific or health reason why the plant should not be de-scheduled and the laws against it be repealed and declared null and void immediately.
