Today on Radioactivity, Rob Lorei explores the heated debate over marijuana. Are people dying from marijuana? Are their brains being changed forever? And are there any medical uses for the plant- which is outlawed in Florida. But that may change somewhat if voters approve a medical marijuana amendment this November. Is marijuana medicine? Rob talks about this issue today with Greg Gerdeman an assistant professor of biology at Eckerd College who has studied the effects of cannabis on the brain for more than 15 years.
