In this episode, Dr. Bob speaks with Dr. Karen Randall and Dr. Brad Roberts, emergency room physicians in Pueblo, Colorado. Doctors Randall and Roberts first walk us through the process of how cannabis was legalized (and portrayed to be a positive, money maker) in their town of Pueblo, Colorado. The conversation then dives into how marijuana can not only get into the hands of innocent children, but can negatively impact an entire town. Don't miss part one of this riveting and important discussion.
