(2018) If you still consider using weed as a “vice,” would you rather see a person use cannabis, alcohol, or prescription drugs.
In this Newsbuds edition of Northwest Cannacast, the panel discusses new findings that conclude people who use cannabis tend to use less alcohol and opioids. It’s been proven both booze and pills can kill, but cannabis…as potent as it can be…doesn’t have a single documented case of killing someone. You can argue “But yeah, if you get high and go drive, you could kill someone,” but that’s not what’s on the table in this interesting conversation.
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.
