About the Author

James G. Wigmore worked as a forensic toxicologist for over twenty-nine years at one of the foremost forensic laboratories in North America -- the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto, Ontario. He has testified in over 700 criminal cases throughout Canada and in numerous personal injury civil cases and coroner's inquests. He has published over seventy scientific articles in forensic toxicology, which have been cited by the Supreme Court of Canada (R v St Onge-Lamoreux, 2012) and the High Court in Cape Town, South Africa (S vs Hendricks, 2013). In 2005, he was awarded the prestigious Derome Award from the Canadian Society of Forensic Science in recognition of outstanding contributions in the field of forensic sciences. From 2004 to 2012, he taught at the Robert F. Borkenstein Course at Indiana University in Bloomington. Wigmore on Cannabis is his third book published with Irwin Law.


"Wigmore has extensively assessed peer-reviewed scientific literature on the human forensic toxicology of tetrahydrocannabinol and other cannabinoids found in marijuana (cannabis). In this book, he presents over 550 of the approximately 5,000 studies he examined. . . . Medical and legal practitioners will find this an indispensable tome with up-to-date scientific evidence related to cannabis and its use. Academic law libraries will also benefit from having this practical book in their collections, as it emphasizes the depth of analysis that has been undertaken and will continue to be required as new cannabis-related issues arise in our courts."--Margo Jeske, University of Ottawa Library, Canadian Law Library Review (2019) 44:2
