For Pier-Vincenzo Piazza,* “The researcher’s attitude is like that of an artist who maintains that his world view is reality.” With his team in Bordeaux, the researcher has developed a drug that counteracts the effects of cannabis use. Its efficacy in humans remains to be tested: a trial is expected to begin in mid-2016.
