Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

Proponents of marijuana legalization often compare the drug to alcohol, pointing out the similar effects on the human mind and body. This, they say, argues for ending the prohibition on marijuana and thus significantly de-escalating the drug war. But is the analogy between marijuana and alcohol a medically valid one?

Dr. David Atkinson, assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, debates Dr. Uma Dhanabalan, founder and CEO of Global Health and Hygiene Solutions.
