He demystifies many of the common myths and misconceptions regarding cannabis use and consumption and explains how several of the chemical components within the plant can be beneficial to adults in moderation. He also explains the potential impact that legalizing marijuana may have on our youth’s consumption and accessibility as well as our overall society.
