Episode Description:

Take a look at Tom O’Connell 2014 “Pot Doc” for his first episode in this series.

Dr. Tom has been an advocate for medical marijuana for many years. While a retired surgeon, he was recruited to interview patients and give recommendations as proscribed by California’s Proposition 215. Having a clientele that was willing to use a medication for which they could be jailed and fined intrigued him and he began to take careful notes as he interviewed patients.

In this video, Tom shows that the Controlled Substances Act (Nixon's Law) was enacted for political reasons, to punish the hippies, and was not based on medical science. In fact, the Shafer Commission that congress formed to study the issue, said it should be de-criminalized! This is available at

Tom has accumulated a database of over 7000 patients that he is in the process of analyzing in detail, but he has made some fascinating preliminary findings. For example, many patients seem to use marijuana to compensate for an absent or neglectful father.
