Ronan Levy never used or experimented with drugs or alcohol while growing up. He even admits to being skeptical of the therapeutic applications for cannabis as he was getting into the industry in 2013. But Levy was open minded and felt that criminalizing consumption and production of cannabis (and other illicit substances that have low harm profiles) made little political or regulatory sense. He was excited to support the burgeoning cannabis industry and as the evidence for medical cannabis continued to build, Levy directly witnessed the profoundly positive impact his clinics were having on patients’ lives. His cautious optimism morphed into avid support for cannabis as medicine.
