Episode 10 On Miss Grass Misses Out

This interview of the Miss Grass founder was a great inside view of turning personal struggles into financial success. Yet listening to it nobody would have any idea that ingesting cannabis does have actual negative impacts on brain development. It’s not all roses. It would’ve been good to also hear how Miss Grass confronts these areas as well.
