Tuesday, March 12 -   Medical cannabis - With cannabis recently legalized in Canada and
rapidly being legalized throughout the USA people have lots of questions about its medical uses. Dr. Ted Harrison will talk about what cannabis is, what its effects on the body are, and what conditions it has been shown to be effective in.
Dr. Harrison will be joined by Diane Heideke and Elizabeth Worley of Cloud Forest Botanicals.   Moderator:  Cheryl Schmidt


Tuesday, March 19 – Dr. Paul Myers addresses "Thinking Geologically Expands your Universe".  Geologic thinking transforms your relationship with the physical world.  It confronts you with the extremes of bigness and smallness, and infinite time. When and why is this experience important? How do geologists fit in the "modern" world?  How is geology relevant here and now in Boquete, Panama?     Come, join the discussion.  We will expand on it in the field later.  Moderator:  Sheila Strunk
