SXSW 2019 - Featured Session - The Cannabis Renaissance: Science Validates Tradition

TCR traces the trajectory of cannabis from ancient medical text to modern lab; examines how modern science has validated the therapeutic uses cited in those texts; outlines the overlooked wellness benefits of cannabis (like extending patience, promoting tolerance, heightening appreciation of nature, encouraging introspection, resolving disputes peacefully & etc.); offers official statistics showing cannabis reduces alcohol & pharma sales, opioid overdoses, binge drinking, domestic violence and other socially harmful behavior; and argues those statistics and real life experience both suggest the plant could alleviate more intractable social problems like intolerance, sexism, violence—and just might be the last, best chance to we have to save Planet Earth.
