On this episode of Inside EMS, co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson tackle a hot button issue: medical marijuana and its use by public safety members.

Holland to discuss the event from a legal angle.
The conversation delves into the responsibility of leadership, how the Collective Bargaining Agreement factors into the debate and how EMS should address the issue in the future.
