Meet the Man that Discovered the Endocannabinoid System
February 23, 2016 | Talana Lattimer
Have you ever heard of the endocannabinoid system? Meet the man who discovered it at #Unity16 March 18-22 in Washington, D.C.
ASA is thrilled to announce the Keynote Speaker for the 4th Annual National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference is Professor Lumír Hanuš!
Prof. Hanuš is the world’s leading expert on the endocannabinoid system who famously isolated the first known endocannabinoid neurotransmitter, anandamide which lead to his co-discovery of the endocannabinoid system. His work has shaped our understanding of the biological actions of cannabis by isolating individual cannabinoids and their associated receptors. And he will be sharing his insight directly with you.
If that isn’t enough...
The 4th Annual National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference will give YOU the opportunity to influence historic international and domestic advances in medical marijuana policy.
Besides being part of amazing conversations with scientists, politicians, doctors, patients, and activists from all over the world, you will be making history in two ways:
- As an attendee, you will participate in peer-reviewing a document which will be submitted to the United Nations for their special assembly on drug policy putting the rescheduling of Cannabis on the agenda for the UN meeting later this year.
- You will also meet with members of Congress about finally passing comprehensive federal cannabis legislation. We will be scheduling meetings with your congressional representative to discuss the CARERS Act. Sharing your personal stories and perspectives is key to passing this important legislation.
Leave YOUR mark on history by having your voice heard by the United Nations and Congress!
