World Cannabis Congress.

Speaking at the second World Cannabis Congress, Philippe Lucas—Vice President, Global Patient Research and Access for Tilray—turned a few preconceived notions about cannabis on their head. Starting off his speech on 'The Impact of Medical Cannabis on the Use of Opioids and Other Drugs', Lucas revealed that he gets very frustrated when people say there is no research on cannabis. This statement is contrary to what you may hear in the mainstream media, and even from some cannabis experts. Having been in the industry for over 25 years both as a patient and patient provider, Lucas has seen a rise in clinical and observational cannabis research, but also points out that "there are over 30,000 articles on PubMed" on cannabis as a therapeutic treatment.
