February 20, 2014•9 min
Listen to the other side of the legalization of marijuana, and separate fact from fiction.The crops are popping up everywhere and the legalization of recreational and medicinal marijuana is covered almost daily in the media. We hear stories about how cannabis reduces suicide or how political opposing parties are going to Obama to put a stop to other states jumping on the cannabis entrepreneurial band wagon despite the fact based health benefits it provides. On the office National Cannabis Industry website www.thecannabisindustry.org you'll find the following mission: "To promote the growth of a responsible and legitimate cannabis industry and work for a favorable social, economic and legal environment for that industry in the United States." Hear from Taylor West, Deputy Director of the National Cannabis Industry Association as she sheds light on what the Association does to support the legalization of cannabis and why a lot of what we hear being covered in the media may not be what the facts are.
