Episode 325 – The Science of Legal Marijuana

A cluster of 12 test tubes is seen against a blurred softly-lit background. The tubes appear almost as if they are baby birds- with a glass pipette poised above as if to offer food. The pipette has the barest hint of a clear liquid in its tip.

Jahan Marcu and first-time guest Maha Haq join host Heather Sullivan to talk about the Science of Legal Marijuana, including details on peer review, testing protocols, and cannabis as a possible treatment for the coronavirus. Produced by Shea Gunther.
