Have a question about Marijuana that you want to ask a qualified doctor? At 1 pm EST on October 15, 2015 you can do just that with a Reddit AMA.
If you’re familiar with Reddit, you should be excited for today’s upcoming AMA with Dr. Kevin Hill. Dr. Hill is currently researching addiction, Marijuana and Tobacco at McLean Hospital in Massachusetts, USA. McLean is a psychiatric hospital affiliated with Harvard Medical School and serving persons with psychiatric and addiction disorders.
Dr. Kevin Hill has already logged in today to give everyone an update, and it reads:
Hi reddit, thanks for visiting my AMA on marijuana today. I am currently doing research at McLean Hospital on marijuana as well as cigarettes. I thought reddit would be a good way to reach out to the community and answer any questions you may have regarding marijuana or addiction. I just recently released a book titled “Marijuana: The Unbiased Truth about the World’s Most Popular Weed” to dispel common myths people have on marijuana. With all the news lately regarding medical marijuana and legalization of marijuana, I think it is important for everyone to know the facts . I have a realistic view of the shift that is happening in this country and can answer any questions you have regarding the current state of marijuana laws in our country or marijuana itself.
Some of my current studies involve new medications that have been used to treat marijuana addiction (yes reddit, it is addictive… not as much as other drugs, but that does not make it harmless). One of the medications we are currently using in a study is called Nabilone and chemically mimics the effects of THC. Feel free to ask me any questions about these new medications.
Even though my focus recently has been more on marijuana, I have a lot of experience dealing with other addictions. I frequently visit news programs to discuss such things as the current opioid epidemic and how to treat opioid addiction.
Check out my website: drkevinhill.com . There you can find more information about me as well as the research I am currently doing. If any of the studies sound like a good fit for you and you live in the Boston area, call the number on the website (617-855-2359) to participate.
I will be back to answer your questions at 1 pm ET (10 am PT, 5 pm UTC), ask me anything!
