On Call: A Case for Medical Marijuana?

Posted by Katy Beem on

A 2016 Pew Research Center polls shows 57% of U.S. adults think marijuana should be legal. Marijuana is currently classified by the federal government as a Schedule I controlled substance, putting it in the same category as heroin and LSD. On Call with the Prairie Doc, featuring Dr. Rick Holm, asks and reflects on the question Is There a Case for Medical Marijuana?
