TCAN To Screen Noted Cannabis Documentary

TCAN is among cinema venues nationwide that will screen the award-winning 2018 documentary "Weed the People", exploring the medical use of cannabis in the treatment of children with cancer. The screening is scheduled for Wednesday, December 12 2018 at 7:30pm in the Cinema Room at TCAN.

Directed by filmmakers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, the film takes an unflinching look at the underground world of herbal medicine, where patients become experts on their own conditions and spend thousands of dollars on federally illegal medicines that are concocted in suburban kitchens. Nowhere is this phenomenon more compelling than in the treatment of children, whose parents will stop at nothing to help them.

"Weed the People" looks beyond pot-activist propaganda and politics to reveal the legitimate science behind cannabis medicine and the compelling stories of ordinary people whose lives are inescapably caught up in the controversy.

The screening at TCAN will be followed by a discussion led by Dr. Uma Dhanabalan, MD, MPH, FAAFP, MRO, a highly respected physician trained in Family Medicine and Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
