This week on Eating Disorder, the guys welcome the "edibles" expert, Chef Payton Curry, to the program. Seeking to train people to properly medicate using marijuana in their everyday food and cooking, Payton makes points on why this practice should be more widely recognized and why the opinion of marijuana should change for the better. Though the majority of the legislation throughout the country prohibits a restaurant like Payton's Brat Haus in Scottsdale, AZ to sell infused food, the chef has led many cooking classes centered around the green ingredient. With a goal to help rather than get the masses high, he also instructs on how to use the marijuana plant to soothe pain and irritation in a lotion form, for example. Tune in for a rousing discussion and learn a little more about alternative uses for marijuana. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.
