I think this was a good episode. When people take drugs they should be aware of the risks- and more often than not, at least I hear, that marijuana is completely harmless. And some even say you can't get addicted from it either.

Namelessandpure says:

The people didn't say that weed causes schizophrenia. They said your brain would act like it was having a schizophrenic episode, but it goes away after it wears off. It's so hypocritical of people who want to use science to prove marijuana is good but don't want to listen to science when they talk about the negative consequences of.

more like CBD marketplace

Muff Potter says:

IMDB never said Chelsea Peretti was a medical technician. Love her work!

Jonathan Palmquist says:

Aundrey gets panic attacks – let's give her Durban Poison, the most intense sativa strain possible that is way more likely to cause panic attacks.

Nunya Bidness says:

Marijuana is incredibly powerful and beneficial for many reasons. It's cheap to grow and has little to none negative side effects. If it became legal for people to start self medicating themselves lots of other businesses will suffer – alcohol, pharmaceutical, etc. including revenues for the entire justice system – jails, courts, lawyers, policing budgets, etc as 70% of all arrests are marijuana possession. Bottom line is, prohibition is purely a corporate and government business strategy.

Nunya Bidness says:

Marketplace used the "opinion" of ONE scientist to show that CBDs balance out the psychoactive properties of THC and went on a witch hunt to demonize cannabis. The ONLY problem right now is prohibition – without which we can finally study how the population copes with cannabis.

Y s says:

Damn they where smoking bags of dirt in the 70s😭

daniel hoache says:

It's proven smoking weed will never make you vomit. ACTUALLY if you're feeling sick smoke some and abracadabra no more vomiting feeling

Humpty Dumpty says:

CONFLICT OF INTEREST CBC FORGOT TO MENTION ??????===
Julian Fantino, a former Toronto police chief who was an outspoken critic of legalizing marijuana, is now executive chair of a GTA medical marijuana company.+ former RCMP deputy commissioner Raf Souccar, who is Aleafia’s president and chief executive officer.

satansaysimnuts says:

As soon as your "expert" claimed they were showing signs of schizophrenia and higher THC means more addictive.
Proved your "Study" is nothing but the old school lies and propaganda .

Christian Fletcher says:

A lot of the bad reactions is because it's a sativa Strain, I smoke weed everyday but still get bad reactions from heavy sativa strains

TheBwaap says:

"we dont know much about weed"
next she says, its definitively a lot stronger!
(based on what data ?) youre opinion?

Simon Vuille says:

All these lowlives saying that weed isn't dangerous, absolutely astonishing. There are many serious studies showing the negative effects of smoking (or just consuming in any form). Is your life that bad that you have to be high on a regular basis? I'd advise you to see how you can improve your life (with long-term in mind).

Mike Di says:

you are forgetting about (CBD) wich counter acts the negative effects of (THC) and creates a balance and is actually good for mental illness

Alexis Aguilar says:

People speak for yourself and your brain not for others

Mike Di says:

I jumped into conclusion sry
