EP 09: Tommy Chong – Cannabis And You

As a youth, were you taught that cannabis is bad? Why is this negative stigma still around even in the face of overwhelming evidence that cannabis is not harmful?

Favorite Quote:

“I wasn’t a druggie in all means, I was the opposite – I was a bodybuilder. I was interested in health. In the 50’s weight lifting was banned and the only drug that weight lifters would take is weed.”
