Recording: Cannabis: An Alternative to Opiates in Pro Sports, Mar 11, 2018

With a panel of ex pro athletes and doctors we will explore the deep rooted addiction problems opiates have caused in America and how we can find less addictive options for pain relief. The focus of the panel will contrast cannabis as a viable alternative to opiates. A focus upon professional athletes will be used to exemplify that cannabis can potentially replace painkillers for anyone from a top level pro athlete to an average person who has chronic pain issues.
