Book Signing and Talk by Cannabinoid Medicine Expert David Bearman, M.D., to Take Place at UCSB

Join David Bearman, M.D., one of the top experts in cannabinoid medicine, for a fascinating discussion about the amazing properties of medical marijuana at the UCSB Multicultural Center from 6–7:30 p.m. Nov. 4, 2015. 

Dr. Bearman will also explain why we have to change the current US drug policy that discriminates against blacks, Latinos and others. He will discuss why drug policy reform is good for your health, freedom, liberty, the economy, the environment and essential to restoring the Constitution.  

Dr. Bearman will share the colorful history of how cannabis became marijuana and illegal, as well as the importance of medical cannabis and its role in treating and possibly curing a wide range of diseases, including cancer.

He is the author of Drugs Are NOT the Devil’s Tool: How Discrimination and Greed Created a Dysfunctional Drug Policy and How It Can Be Fixed.  

In addition to answering questions about medical marijuana and legalization, he will also sign copies of Drugs Are NOT the Devil’s Tools after his talk.  

Dr. Bearman has had a long career in the field of drug abuse treatment and prevention, served at all levels of government from the U.S. Public Health Service to founding the Isla Vista Medical Clinic.

He is also executive vice-president of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine and has been an expert witness in over 400 civil, criminal and family court cases

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
