PART II: Opponents
Here in North Carolina, throughout the South and across the nation, the discussion about medical marijuana legislation has gained a lot of traction lately.

On this Charlotte Talks we hear from one of the nation's foremost drug policy advisors, a recovering marijuana addict and an instructor with Central Piedmont Community College's Substance Abuse Program. Is all this medical cannabis talk just smoke in mirrors? Is there legitimacy behind the claims? It might be more complicated than yes or no. .
