The latest episode of On the Rag is all about the devil’s lettuce, the electric pūhā, choof.

Michèle visits medicinal cannabis campaigner Rose Renton and Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party co-leader Maki Herbert to hear their stories, and Professor Michelle Glass from the pharmacology and toxicology department at Otago University appears out of thin air to clear up some of the biggest myths and misconceptions on the topic of marijuana.

On the Rag is made with the support of NZ On Air.
