      On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel speaks with Dr. Jordan Tishler about the importance of patient safety not being lost in the process of adult use legalization. Dr Tishler graduated from both Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, trained at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and is currently faculty at both the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He has spent many years working with the underserved, particularly providing care for veterans. Having treated countless patients harmed by alcohol and drugs, his observation that he had never seen a cannabis overdose led him to delve deeply into the science of cannabis safety and treatment. He is a frequent speaker and author on a variety of topics related to the medical applications of cannabis, and he is the President of the Association of Cannabis Specialists, which aims to educate clinicians, lawmakers, and the industry about best practices and necessary tools for proper patient care.

      On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel talks with Mark and Christy Zartler. They are parents to twin daughters, one of which, Kara, suffers from Autism and Cerebral Palsy and struggles with severe self-injurious behavior related to her condition. Whole plant cannabis has helped to relieve some of her symptoms when traditional medications didn’t. That wouldn’t be a problem if they lived in a legal medical cannabis state, but they live in Texas. The Zartler’s risk the wrath of law enforcement and Child Protective Services (when Kara was younger) in order to bring their daughter the only medication that brings her relief from her self injurious behavior. They are sharing their story in hopes of helping other families who are coping with similar situations.

      On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel talks with Lisa Quarrell, a mother who lives in East Kilbride, Scotland, who has been tirelessly campaigning for a National Health Service-funded prescription that her son desperately needs. Her 8-year-old son, Cole, was diagnosed with a rare form of severe epilepsy as a baby and suffered up to 20 seizures a day. He had undergone brain surgery and tried 20 different anti-epileptic drugs before before he was prescribed a life-saving cannabis oil which has helped him tremendously. The coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for her to afford the medication since the fundraising nights she was having were put on hold. She has since been campaigning to have cannabis oil and medications provided and paid for by the NHS but she continues to struggle with the bureaucracy of the Scottish government and NHS Scotland.
