Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Marijuana, Mental Health, and Eliminating Stigma
Dr. Sanjay Gupta is a multiple Emmy-award winning chief medical correspondent for CNN and a practicing neurosurgeon. This week, he sits down with Alyssa to discuss his career, why he changed his mind on the benefits of cannabis, how to eliminate the stigma of mental health, and the impact of deregulation.
Alyssa and Dr. Gupta talk about the potential for cannabis to aid in the opioid epidemic, what the media needs to do better when it comes to covering mental health, why we don’t pay enough attention to our water systems, and so much more.
