Abstract

A single case report is described where marijuana appears to have been an effective treatment modality for symptoms of Tourette's syndrome. Other possible treatment modalities are excluded. It is concluded that there is a need for further work examining the interactions between marijuana, nicotine and the symptomatology of Tourette's syndrome.
