Marijuana - It's been around forever. Heck, even George Washington grew hemp at his home in Mount Vernon. This ancient plant is now being seen in a whole new light, however, as states and nations change their laws and attitudes about the plant. Come learn about the relevant technical, medical, legal, and economic issues from Georgia Tech engineering professor, local comedian, and cannabis researcher Dr. Pete Ludovice.
