  • In this occasional series we record the views and personal experience of people who have specially contributed to the evolution of ideas in the Journal’s field of interest. Entering what was, at the start, a neglected field, Raphael Mechoulam went on to pursue, over the next 40 years, a highly productive career in cannabis research. This interview charts a sequence of discoveries and reveals something of the dedication and intellectual daring which has characterized the enterprise throughout.
