The conversation continues about the legalization of marijuana. But what types of industries could the legalization of marijuana support? We spoke with Dr. Joel Cervantes, a neurosurgeon, about the viability of the medicinal marijuana industry. He gave an overview of the scientifically accepted medicinal and nutritional use of the components of marijuana. He also shared his perspective on how we could use these to create economic benefits for the country. He says that the medical fraternity should lead this movement and that a dialogue should ensue about research and the required ethical guidelines to facilitate such an industry.
