S1E5 - The Scientist

Episode Description

What does cannabis do to the brain?  What is the "entourage" effect?  Does having no receptors in the medulla make cannabinoids safer than opioids?  Dr. Mike Namaka schools Trevor and Kirk about the neuroscience behind cannabis.  What do we know?  What do we not know?  Where is the science taking us?
