Lester Grinspoon, legendary cannabis researcher, died at the age of 92

The day after his 92nd birthday, influential cannabis researcher and author Lester Grinspoon passed away. His son Peter reports this via Twitter. Grinspoon's books greatly influenced the debate about the cannabis ban in the United States and beyond.

Lester Grinspoon was born on June 24, 1928 in Newton, Massachussetts. For decades, he was a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and a 40-year psychiatrist at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center in Boston. In 1971 he published "Marijuana Reconsidered", a groundbreaking book on the criminalization of cannabis. Marijuana: The Forbidden Medicine, published in 1993, had a major impact on the social and political debate about medicinal cannabis.

Grinspoon was a true convert: when he started studying cannabis in 1967, he was convinced that “it was a very harmful drug that was unfortunately being used by more and more foolish young people who would not listen to or could not believe or understand the warnings about its dangers. ” The more research he did, the more it became clear that he, and the rest of the American public, had been lied to about the dangers of cannabis.

We probably wouldn't have legalized in so many states if it wasn't for Grinspoon. RIP and this bowl is for you Lester.

- I don't think its so sad when someone makes it to 92 years old before passing on - especially if they have had a full and worthy life - publishing such groundbreaking information on cannabis too - He must have died with a smile on his face - I would have -

RIP Lester -

Great post Gypsy, I was also kinda thinking that at 92, he did OK. Isn't there a string of pearls strain named after him?

Born on June 24, died on June 25. Musta over-celebrated the 92nd B'day.

RIP Mr. Grinspoon
