No, we're not advocating for smoking weed in your dorm room or hiding it in your locker. Instead, we're talking about academic education surrounding cannabis. A 2017 survey published in Drug and Alcohol Dependance reached out to medical school deans, fellows and residents and found that there was a “fundamental mismatch between the state-level legalization of medical marijuana and the lack of preparation of physicians-in-training to prescribe it.” In addition to guiding future doctors on its use, what about the larger implications of widespread cannabis - like how do we teach about how it may affect the US’s economy? This week Hayley speaks with Eugenio Castro Garza, co-founder of UCLA’s own Cannaclub, a student-run organization that aims to connect students with jobs in the legal cannabis industry while also addressing wider misconceptions surrounding the drug.UCLA's Cannaclub: https://cannaclubatucla.orgHayley's L.A.
