Subject: Evidence for medical marijuana


Hi Everyone - a bit of self-promotion - some of you might get a kick out of a medical education musical parody video I just released on medical marijuana.

Hopefully it brightens up your day and gets your toe tapping for 3-4 minutes - and you’ll know more about the evidence around marijuana in the process.

This is the latest in an excellent series of parodies on health issues (overdiagnosis, polypharmacy...) by James McCormack. He skilfully combines music, humour and evidence to create wonderful edutainment, each video lasting just a few minutes.
