Dr. Peter Grinspoon debates on cannabis and mental health

Alex Berenson is a former New York Times reporter and the author of Tell Your Children: The Truth About Madness, Marijuana and Violence, a controversial tome that has been widely dismissed by many scientists as a cherry-picking, fearmongering book that confuses correlation and causation and misinterprets much of the scientific research cited within.

Dr. Peter Grinspoon is a physician at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital, as well as the author of Free Refills: A Doctor Confronts His Addiction.

The debate, which took place at Yale Law School, was moderated by Dr. Jason L Schwartz, assistant professor of health policy and the history of medicine at the Yale School of Public Health, who also wrote before the event that he was “looking forward to moderating what I expect to be a very lively debate” about the pros and cons of cannabis.
