This past weekend, Texans braved the Ebola threat (haha…too soon?) to participate in the 2014 Dallas Marijuana March at Dallas City Hall.

Our suggestion is that you share this podcast with the cannabis antagonists in your lives. Maybe it will help foster intelligent discussion and prevent you from running around in circles!
We learned a lot from this March 2010 talk given by Claudia Little at the Ashland Alternative Health Clinic in Ashland, Oregon. Claudia is a registered nurse with an advanced degree in Public Health, as well as a marijuana activist. She cites many statements, research reports and advocacy efforts that have fallen on deaf ears.
For instance, did you know:
- Cannabinoids exist in the human body as receptors, which is why smoking marijuana provides health benefits and symptom relief to humans,
