Marijuana Madness Part I with Avani Dilger

26 Oct 2017 · Beyond Risk and Back
 
Marijuana has gone from being the “Devil’s Weed” to “Harmless” but what is the truth? Is there propaganda on both sides? Is it REALLY addictive? Is it REALLY medicine? Is marijuana harmless? Host Aaron Huey of Fire Mountain Residential Treatment Center and Avani Dilger approach it from the middle to try to discover the truth.
IN THIS HEARTWARMING CONVERSATION AVANI DILGER, FOUNDER OF NATURAL HIGHS TALKS ABOUT THE WORK SHE'S DOING TO CULTIVATE HEALTH IN OUR COMMUNITY AND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
