About O'Shaughnessy's

The Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC), was founded in 1999 by Tod Mikuriya, MD to enable doctors monitoring cannabis use by their patients to share findings and observations. It was originally called the California Cannabis Research Medical Group.
O’Shaughnessy’s is produced for the SCC doctors by the managing editor and distributed to patients, caregivers, and concerned citizens. The goal is mutual continuing education —to keep ourselves abreast of scientific developments in the field of cannabis therapeutics, as well as relevant political, legal and commercial developments.
Dr. Mikuriya is a historian as well as a clinician (and a political organizer), and one of his goals for the journal has been to fill in the "memory holes" that Prohibitionists have created in the American landscape.
"Forgotten memories" can be collective as well as individual. As Rick Steves pointed out at last year's NORML meeting, we've all been subjected to a dumbing-down process in this country. O'Shaughnessy's is an attempt to compensate for our miseducation.

O'Shaughnessy's is the journal of the CCRMG/SCC. Our primary goals are the same as the stated goals of any reputable scientific publication: to bring out findings that are accurate, duplicable, and useful to the community at large. But in order to do this, we have to pursue parallel goals such as removing the impediments to clinical research created by Prohibition, and educating our colleagues, co-workers and patients as we educate ourselves about the medical uses of cannabis.
The Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC) was formed in the Autumn of 2004 by the member physicians of CCRMG to aid in the promulgation of voluntary standards for clinicians engaged in the recommendation and approval of cannabis under California law (HSC §11362.5).

As the collaborative effort continues to move closer to issueing guidelines, this site serves as a public venue for airing and discussing these guidelines.
