Raphael Mechoulam, considered by many to be the “Father” of cannabis, died at the age of 92 in Jerusalem, Israel. The news was advanced this morning by Israeli researcher and former student of Mechoulam, Dedi Meiri, on LinkedIn. Mechoulam was the most influential and pioneering figure in the field of medical cannabis research internationally. The Cannareporter extends its deepest condolences to Mechoulam’s wife, Dalia, children, family and all those who have been inspired by the fundamental work done by Raphi, as he was known, in the field of cannabis.
