“Medical Cannabis: Myth, Miracle or Money Dump?”
One cannot look at a newspaper, magazine, billboard, or social media platform
these days without reading something about the miracle of cannabis and its
ability to treat all kinds of illness.
But is it real?
Does cannabis really help all the conditions many people believe it does or is it simply the ‘snake oil’ of the 21st century?
Can cannabis honestly give hope to people when conventional medicine has failed them – or is it a place where people waste money buying unproven products because they are desperate for help when nothing else has seemed to work?
Dr. Thomas Sims has worked for years educating and managing over 6,000 people using medical cannabis successfully and has an expertise in the use of cannabis as medicine. In this presentation he provides honest, science-based answers to these and other questions people interested in marijuana as medicine need to know.
Dr. Sims’ first-hand experience and knowledge in cannabis research is shared in this easy to understand presentation that is suitable for marijuana dispensary employees and customers, medical and nursing schools and organizations interested in top shelf knowledge about the field they can pass on to their patients, groups such as church gatherings, community-based service clubs and organizations, businesses and large corporations – virtually any organization whose members have questions about medical marijuana.
This is NOT a discussion to convince people to use medical marijuana. Rather, it focuses on the principle that if a person chooses to use medical cannabis, they use it safely and properly to increase the potential of obtaining the treatment goals they seek.
Copies of Dr. Sims book will be available at the presentation.
“My Pathway to Traditional Publishing”
Statistics show that literary agents receive approximately 2,000 submissions every year, but they are likely
to accept only 2-3 writers from all those inquiries. That makes the chances of getting a literary agent about 1 in 1000.
As if that’s not bad enough, other stats show that, in any given year, even if you’ve been fortunate enough to land the
agent of your dreams, the chance of your agent actually selling your book to a reputable publisher is about 10% or even less.
So, is it worth the effort? Are you confused over what to do?
Don’t fret. There’s light at the end of the tunnel!
If writing is your passion and you want to share your words, your name, and your voice with the world, you bet it’s worth it. And you can increase your chances of making that happen if you know a few tricks!
Dr. Thomas Sims has been traditionally published twice. His last book, a memoir that deals with his life and work in Arctic Alaska, was sold to Pegasus Books (NY & London) in a matter of weeks and has gone on to become a #1 Bestseller on Amazon and audio book.
Tom’s memoir “On Call in the Arctic” has been promoted in print and on national TV, NPR, and at the world-famous Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon. Tom has a New York literary agent and his work is currently being considered for Hollywood.
Dr. Sims’ success didn’t happen because of luck. It took time and effort, planning, and an understanding of the new publishing industry and how it all works – tips he is pleased to share in this presentation.
This presentation is suitable for writer’s conferences, writer’s guilds, and medium to large writing organizations in which members seek information and advice on how to become a published author.
