Program Description

Description

The legalization of marijuana is picking up steam in the United States. Proponents tout the medicinal benefits of the substance. Opponents assert the dangers. How do we know fact from fiction when it comes to marijuana? Participants in this presentation will learn the physical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive effects of marijuana based on neuroscience. We will NOT say "Drugs are bad," "Marijuana is a cure-all" or debate the issue. It'll be "Just the Facts," presented by Dr. James M. Smith, licensed professional counselor and Lincoln University faculty member.
