Marijuana as medicine - especially for children - is something most people have a very firm view about. That is, they’re against it. But this story will likely change your mind; it certainly changed Michael Usher’s. Subscribe here: http://9Soci.al/chmP50wA97J Full Episodes here http://9Soci.al/sImy50wNiXL In parts of America, prescription pot is legal and, many believe, saving lives. Politicians, doctors and patients are also shifting their thinking and there's now a green rush to legalise cannabis for medicine nationwide. Here, it is a crime, forcing Australian families to break the law to help their children. But they don't have to do that in the Rocky Mountain state of Colorado where Michael has been to investigate how the medical marijuana business works in practice – and to meet the little girl who's helped change the laws across America. (2014)
