In this episode of The Brain Warrior’s Way Podcast, Dr. Daniel Amen and Tana Amen discuss the controversial issue of marijuana. Dr. Daniel Amen and Tana Amen discuss many of the options available for those who believe medicinal marijuana is the only way to cope with their afflictions. Both sides of the issue have strong proponents who argue passionately to defend their stance, but what do the actual brain scans say? The results may surprise you. Not all marijuana use is recreational. Many people use marijuana purely for its medicinal effects. But are there healthier alternatives?
