Marijuana Class: Week 2

There have been conflicting studies on the physiological impact of smoking marijuana. We will review the state of the art on the health risks marijuana poses, and determine if there are ways a user can minimize their exposure to these risks while still allowing for some level of use. Just as some types of alcohol consumption is more risky than others, it may be that prevention programs take on the role of trying to divert users away from some type of use towards others. Consumption routes, interactions with other substances and types of marijuana may be variables that become important to consider. Exploring the extent literature will hopefully help to guide such an approach.
