“Cannabinoid-based medicines do have a place in Western pharmacology,” Aguirre informed Marijuana.com three days earlier than the occasion. Aguirre was on his means to print supplies between courses. He stated was extraordinarily proud of the work he and his fellow college students had carried out to put the Science Symposium collectively.

“Seeing one of my ideas come to fruition, where we’re having a conversation, talking about the science, and educating people, that’s one of the most fulfilling things I’ve done in my life thus far,” Aguirre stated. “I was really happy about the response I got from the college pharmacy and school of nursing when I came to them with this idea, alongside Adam.”
