While the phrase "medicinal weed" often brings to mind Snoop Lion, or "puff-puff pass," Charis Circle's Urban Sustainability and Wellness Program is hosting a weekly walking tour of local weeds that lean further from the psychedelic and closer to the nutritional side of medicinal. CL caught up with Wye Marley, a local herbalist who leads the Sunday walks from Charis Books and More in Little Five Points, to discuss the various benefits of wild harvesting and the benefits of having a not-so-secret garden in Atlanta's own backyard.
