Medical Doctor John House, who operates the Medical Canna Clinic in Springdale as well as another clinic in Eureka Springs, is hosting a medical marijuana seminar Friday evening at 7:00 at Comfort Inn in Mountain Home. The one-hour seminar will discuss medical marijuana, qualifying conditions, and the process involved in getting a medical marijuana card. The event is free and open to the public.House says one of the purposes of the seminar is to educate participants on the physiological effects of marijuana.
House says he believes marijuana has essentially been demonized when he first learned about it during his college years in the 1980s. He says he always thought the negative connotations were inappropriate.
