US Senator is booed when he brings up the debunked gateway theory. US Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) responded to a question from a constituent with multiple sclerosis who asked about his positions decriminalizing or legalizing marijuana.

He cited the long-debunked gateway drug theory by asserting that “although marijuana doesn’t… everybody that takes it doesn’t become a drug addict… everybody who’s ever a drug addict started with marijuana…”

Dr. Mitch addresses how legalization hurts beer sales and how prohibition hurts medical research and Russ rants and cebunks the claim that hemp-derived CBD oil is “legal in all 50 states”. Plus, the latest examples of hypocrisy from Kevin Sabet’s Project SAM in Vermont.
