Cannibis legalization is coming to Canada, and the Goldwaters have some questions. So, they invited Adam Greenblatt to visit the Goldwater Grille to get some answers. Greenblatt is the Head of Quebec Engagement for medicinal cannabis producer Tweed Inc., and brought his expertise to the podcast to sort through the thorny issues of legalizing pot. Together, Greenblatt and the Goldwaters cover a whole range of issues from why “marijuana” is pejorative, to the dangers of cannabis for teens and young adults.
