Lecture Overview

Medical necessity v a potential for misuse. Can the study of ethics help us to determine if the potential to relieve suffering and improve symptoms outweighs the potentially harmful effects of cannabis? This timely and engaging lecture on the ethical considerations of legalising marijuana is not to be missed.
