Today we are honored to have Chef Marcel Martel. Chef Marcel is a Red Seal Culinary Chef, and has worked for many culinary delight businesses, including Casino Windsor and the Cara restaurant chain. Marcel was against cannabis use in all manners, deeming it stupid, and he helped to continue the stigma, that cannabis "was the devil."
Marcel was diagnosed with Brain Stem Glioma, which attaches to the brain stem. 1 in 400 usually survives this diagnosis. The medical treatment offered to him, chemotherapy and radiation made him feel the worst that he had ever felt. He was introduced to cannabis by a hippy type couple in a restaurant he was operating. The knowledge they provided him with the health benefits of cannabis intrigued him.
Marcel wanted to share his knowledge and excitement about what this plant can do for the body and mind. He vigorously went about forming the company The Devil's Lettuce Cooking with Cannabis. He wanted to give people the power and knowledge to control their own medicine.
