The SCC is pleased to endorse O’Shaughnessy’s, the Journal of Cannabis in Clinical Practice.  We believe it is a valuable resource for professionals in the field of cannabis medicine.

About O’Shaughnessy’s and Notes to the SCC
As the 21st century dawned and more doctors began approving cannabis use by patients, SCC founder Tod Mikuriya, MD, envisioned a journal in which clinicians could share findings and observations and be kept up-to-date on relevant scientific, political and legal developments. “A cross between a medical journal and a defense committee leaflet,” is how he described the project in recruiting me —a former editor of Scientific American and press secretary for the District Attorney of San Francisco— to produce it.

In 2003 we began putting out O’Shaughnessy’s, which Tod named in honor of “a personal hero,” the doctor who introduced cannabis to Western Medicine. Read about William Brooke O’Shaughnessy here

Tod’s business plan was simple: SCC doctors would buy the paper and distribute it free to patients as payback for all that patients had taught them about cannabis as medicine. We produced seven issues of O’Shaughnessy’s before Tod’s death in 2007, and seven more have been published since then. The latest, Winter/Spring 2019 can be ordered here..

Tod and I talked almost daily for many years. My “Notes to the SCC” in the Newsletter are intended to convey the perspective we shared regarding Big Pharma and other upholders of marijuana prohibition.
