Northwest Cannacast – “It’s Worse Than Opioids? ” (S2ep32)

At a time the country is grappling with an Opioid epidemic, there are still those not willing to budge on their anti-cannabis stance…even though research is showing it’s WAY easier on the body to treat pain with pot versus prescription drugs.

In this Newsbuds edition of Northwest Cannacast, we talk about efforts in one state to take another look at the Schedule 1 classification of Cannabis (currently considered the same as heroin in this regard), and if medical marijuana can finally win over critics, now that opioids have presented a much bigger fish to fry.

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 Rant” at the end of the show.
