For years many people have believed marijuana is harmless, it’s medicine, and it’s natural so why don’t we just legalize the use of marijuana? Using the growing body of evidence on marijuana and its health and societal effects, Dr. Sabet challenges seven commonly held myths about marijuana. Join this online book study and learn from the book and each other.
