Payton Curry of the popular Brat Haus in Scottsdale is taking his top chef skills and applying them to marijuana extract.
Curry, who was trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, has a medical marijuana card to treat his anxiety and depression and has been spending his off time teaching others like Anthony Hernandez, who is partially paralyzed, how best to prepare edible marijuana.
