Setting Up Guidelines for Medical Marijuana
“So originally when I started consulting, I don’t work with the industry anymore, but with the company I was working with it was, again, basically to set up guidelines. How is this supposed to be prescribed? How do patients react? What’s the government gonna say? So a lot of companies literally just need that type of information and that insight, something you couldn’t Google search, per se.
And originally it was considered more of a growth industry, but now that marijuana is legal the relevance of medical marijuana is much less, although there is quite a bit of research. One of the foremost researchers in the application of marijuana for pain management, Dr. Mike Weir, is at McGill University, and he also works, I think, for one of the big firms. If I’m not mistaken, it’s Tweed.”
