Findings of the Royal Medico-Botanical Society

Balderdash abound!

Episode Summary

What wasn’t balderdash was what was included in this entry from August 22, 1843, “If the resin be swallowed, almost invariably the inebriation is of the most cheerful kind, causing the person to sing and dance, to eat food with great relish, and to seek out aphrodisiac enjoyment.” Spencer Belz of Last Mile Consulting and SunnyTien Dispensary joined Brandon and Angela to explore Mari’s writing about Royal Medico-Botanical Society and the explanatory words of Mr. Ley, who asserts the health benefits. The trio was delighted to come across a familiar guest star in the "Provincial Medical Journal and Retrospect of the Medical Sciences," the cannabis pioneer Dr. William Brooke O'Shaughnessy.  Mari reinforced the lesson:  we need more voices who speak truths.
