Marijuana and an Official word from RU

This year at the RU Recovery Conference Dr. Crabb, along with others will hold a very special session on Marijuana and its legalization for medical, and recreational use. It is our desire to put resources into your hands concerning these subjects but to also give an Official Statement on the Topic of Medical Marijuana. You do not want to miss this.

If you have stories in your chapter of students who used and abused this drug in the past and are willing to speak openly in a short testimony, either written or recorded for RU use, please let me know. These could be a huge help in our endeavor.
