Research output: Book/ReportOther Report

Abstract

The Tourette Association of America (TAA) is the leading national non-profit organization in the United States working to make life better for all people affected by Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders. As part of that mission the TAA has encouraged and funded research into all aspects of Tourette Syndrome including pharmacological, behavioral, and alternative treatments and therapies.

Inquiries about the use of medical marijuana (cannabis) to alleviate the symptoms of Tourette Syndrome have been on the rise. While some adult members of our community have reported reduced tics when using medical marijuana, others have reported adverse reactions or no effect at all.
