Marijuana has been making the headlines for sometime, specifically for the efforts and legalization of both medical and recreational marijuana. Tonka CARES has compiled information from various sources to inform and spark conversation within the community. Regardless of your views on legalization it is important to become better informed about how this drug and the perception of use of marijuana have changed since legalization in certain regions.
