Podcast: Young Minds on Cannabis

A new Proto podcast explores the effects of pot on the teen brain and how one woman became part of the do-it-yourself medical device movement.

Does pot affect the teenage mind differently? Experts from the Center for Addiction Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital are looking at that question. Their groundbreaking partnership with a Massachusetts high school helps them examine how marijuana may affect memory and learning. 

And Dana Lewis, a woman with Type 1 diabetes, has come up with a way to reprogram her glucose monitoring devices. She calls her invention the “DIY pancreas system,” and it raises important questions about the role patients can play in medical innovation.

Listen to this kickoff episode of the Proto podcast.
