Dude, it’s Legal: Marijuana and Cannibus Laws Open the Door to New Exploration of this Herb

In this re-airing of Show 8: Dude, it’s Legal: Marijuana and Cannabis Laws Open the Door to New Exploration of this Herb, originally shared in 2014, The team explores the legalization of Recreational Marijuana. Here’s the original synopsis:

“This month, three states plus Washington D.C. asked voters to decide whether or not marijuana should be legalized for recreational use. Only one rejected legalizing it for recreation. Today, we’re going to take a look at the laws that have been passed, focusing on Oregon’s, and medicinal and recreational use of marijuana. Be aware that some of the language and subject matter may be a little colorful and inappropriate for younger listeners.”

Herbalists use a variety of terms to describe the properties of herbs. We discussed the term neuropathy, how it’s used medical and  the herbal world.


We covered the Washington Post article, “The Brains of Marijuana Users are Different, Especially if They Start Young,” which spurred our discussion for today’s main topic. We did not break away for a separate discussion on Herbs in the News.
