Upcoming ‘Nova’ doc builds on a decade of marijuana research


Nova has been a fixture on public television for nearly a half-century but, as recently as 10 years ago, it could not have presented The Cannabis Question, an episode that premieres Sept. 29.

“We definitely know a lot more now than we did 10 years ago in a number of ways,” Yasmin Hurd, a neuroscientist and addiction expert, told TV critics Thursday on the third and final day of the PBS portion of the annual summer Television Critics Association press tour.

The Nova episode looks at research related to marijuana as well as marijuana’s changing status in the legal system. The impact of cannabis on the brain had not been studied a decade ago, Hurd said.
