Dean Ducas, MDCM, CCFPO

A heightened interest in the evolving science of medical marijuana – some 26 years into my now 30-year family medicine practice – led to dedicated study of the academic literature, participation in national and international pain conferences (including the annual Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids (CCIC)) and sharing the evidence with local hospital and community-based colleagues, as well as groups such as the Addictions and Mental Health Services of Cornwall. To date, after 250 referrals and 200 consults, I follow approximately 150 patients.
