“High Sobriety,” a Los Angeles treatment facility where cannabis is used by addicts weaning off hard drugs, was featured in a March 27 New York Times story. The name is as clever as their approach!

(On the other hand, “The co-founder and main investor in High Sobriety, Michael Welch… also co-owns and operates several 12-step-based rehabilitation clinics that have a total of 100 beds. Charges range from $25,000 to $80,000 a month for a private room.”)
