Journal of the California Cannabis Research Medical
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
"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.

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.
