Making peace with cannabis | Zachary Walsh | TEDxPenticton

With Cannabis as a medicine, we are surely thinking that it would somehow replace some of the waste materials used by factories that produce a big quantity of CO2.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The talk explores human beings’ dynamic relationship with the cannabis plant and what recent developments might mean for our health and well-being. Zach Walsh is a clinical psychologist and substance use researcher who teaches at UBC.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
