The UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley is presenting a month-long series of weekly symposia on the Science of Cannabis. The programs will focus on emerging research about the evolution, ethnobotany, neuroscience, medical science, geography, and genetics of cannabis. Each program will feature a national expert who will speak to a non-specialist audience with interaction between the listeners and the speakers. While the lines between the scientific and social issues surrounding Cannabis can be porous, the focus on this symposium will be to disseminate knowledge based upon scientific research.
