Inpatient Rehab May Not Be the Answer

Most addiction treatment specialists recommend going to an inpatient treatment center for a period 30 days or more.

There are many pro-cannabis arguments that make sense in passing, but a closer examination shows us that these "common sense" arguments only apply to cannabis users in the middle of the bell curve.
