Cannabis Pharmacy Talk. Michael Backes is the author of the amazing book, 'Cannabis Pharmacy', and this book has turned some of our understanding of cannabis upside down! Michael's book covers not just an analysis of the current cannabis research but also includes social, political, and economic knowledge as well. If you're not a book lover you're in luck because you can get all of this information from Michael in person at his monthly talks here on Maui. There is so much to learn about cannabis that we are lucky to have someone like Michael collecting the relevant information, parsing it, and presenting it to the public in an informal and fun way. If you have a chance to catch him the next time he's on Maui be sure to do so!
