Jeff discusses the dangers of weed dispensaries on every corner where addiction to narcotics are concerned. He recognizes the need for medical marijuana but draws a clear distinction between the substance abuser and the patient needing the properties found in marijuana to increase the quality of their lives. To read Jeff’s interview on New Life House’s addiction blog, Into the Heart of Addiction, with writer Martha Lockie, click here.
Jeff Merrick’s experience has shown him that an intervention, where marijuana is the drug of choice, can be much more difficult as there is the attitude of, “Don’t panic, it’s organic.” Jeff still believes that where intervention is concerned, it is of maximum importance that the addict is given the solution in the form of treatment, but that they also understand the problem and that the people who love them are no longer willing to be manipulated.
