What Do We Really Know About Cannabis?

11:30 am on October 28, USM/LA/ Senior College - Food for Thought Presentation



Many of us who came of age in the ’60s and ’70s are familiar with cannabis. We called it weed, among other names, and it was a curiosity for us - unpredictable and illegal. However, since that time research has taught us to think about cannabis in a very different way.

On October 28, USM/LA/ Senior College will be presenting a Food for Thought discussion on this important topic.


Joel Buckman has done classes and short workshops on the medical aspects of cannabis for us in the past, but this will be a session, free and open to the public, teaching participants about the benefits of this much-maligned plant - specifically for senior citizens.


Joel graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Boston University. He has been a leading technology management consultant, founded YourTechnologySolutions, Inc. while working at Harvard Business School, and has been an adjunct Instructor at ITT Technical Institute. In 2013 he founded Strain Doctor LLC, a medicinal cannabis wellness company located here in Maine. During the summer Joel enjoys being a NASCAR stock car instructor at the Pocono Raceway in PA.


Come join us on Zoom at 11:30 on October 28. There is a lot to learn! Just email laseniorcollege@gmail.com by noon on October 27. Include your name and the event you’re signing up for. You will receive the link the morning before the presentation.
