Northwest Cannacast – “Gupta’s Fight Against Opioids” (S2ep35)

(2018)  It’s not just his theory: Several people are beginning to talk about treating the nation’s opioid addiction by using cannabis instead.  But when it comes to mainstreaming this kind of idea, Doctor Sanjay Gupta is among the most effective.

In this Perspective edition of Northwest Cannacast, we have a conversation with Gupta about his newest special called “Weed 4: Pot vs. Pills.”  He shares what he found out as a result of his work on the special, and is very candid about the fact that he too wasn’t a fan of medical cannabis at first.  Wait until you hear why!

Northwest Cannacast is “60 Minutes meets Legal Cannabis,” and is a news magazine show designed to promote information, perspective, and understanding.  Enjoy this week’s episode, and be sure to listen for this week’s “Canna 101” feature at the end of the show.
