Inside the CBD project: Denver Post photojournalists share work

The Denver Post photojournalism staff shares their work with the public at a bimonthly photo night, and what’s ahead is a closer look at one of the facets of medical marijuana in Colorado: young patients.

On Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. MST, staff photojournalist Joe Amon and videojournalist Lindsay Pierce will share their recent work from one of The Denver Post’s largest investigative reports of 2014, “Desperate Journey,” exploring the use of cannabis-derived CBD oil and how medical marijuana is being used to treat some conditions in children.

Throughout 2014, Amon and Pierce followed multiple families using CBD oil-based treatments to help their children with seizure disorders, including one family that moved across the country from North Carolina as a last resort to help 12-year-old Preston, who suffers from constant seizures. An audience Q&A will follow a presentation of their work.
