Pot Matters: The Happening
When does it happen?
That was the questions posed to Dr. Norman Zinberg by observers of a groundbreaking research study about cannabis use he conducted at Harvard University with Dr. Andrew Weil. Zinberg and Weil were observing people under the influence of marijuana, something at the time (decades ago) that had never been done before in a scientific setting.
Zinberg invited a few guests interested in the study to observe his research subjects while they used marijuana. That’s when the question came up. When does it happen? “When does what happen?” Zinberg replied. When do they go berserk?
