Five reasons not to treat depression with weed

We recently spoke with two people who, on the recommendation of a therapist, have been using cannabis to manage their anxiety and/or depression.

We were interested and concerned to learn of a health professional giving out this kind of advice, especially to vulnerable people who may just be seeking a quick fix.
