More on Add

In a previous entry, I had occasion to mention the testimony of Dr. Claudia Jensen before the Souder Committee in which she described how she’d learned that young adults with ADD were smoking cannabis to relieve the symptoms for which they had once been treated with Ritalin. Little did I know that she had also been interviewed by Keith Olbermann on MSNBC and had delivered an equally lucid explanation of her findings on TV. Sadly, such an intelligent appreciation of the opportunities offered  by 215 to find out who has been using pot with benefit remains rare. I also haven’t forgotten that I promised to discuss the apparent mechanisms by which inhaled cannabis treats anxiety; all I need is a little spare time...
