On Monday, January 11, 2016, 6 pm, Valentia Piccinini of Synchronicity Holistic and Karen Mankins, RN, will discuss medical cannabis at the Monterey Public Library.  Cannabis or "marijuana" is one of the oldest known & perhaps, most controversial drugs around. It is used for treatment by millennias; particularly in China, India, as well as the Middle East.  Cannabis became accepted as mainstream medicine by the 19th century in the West.   Please join us as we find out what happened. How did we get to where we are today?  Learn about our own endocannabinoid system, the different strains today and what medicinal properties it might hold for our aging population.  This event is part of The Next Chapter: Designing Your Ideal Life lecture series sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Monterey Public Library Endowment Committee.  Adults are invited to attend.  Admission is free, and reservations are required.  Call (831) 646-5632 or email  The Monterey Public Library is located at 625 Pacific Street, Monterey.
