Marijuana: The Other Side of the Story


Phoenix Houses of California board members Timothy Noonan and Geoffrey Nathanson present the 2011 Public Service Award to Mitchell S. Rosenthal, M.D.

What with national polls, some of the states (and even some of my friends) leaning toward legalization of marijuana, it’s important to hear from an expert on the subject and the damage the drug can do to the teenage psyche.
