Interesting!


(CNN) -- Over the last year, I have been working on a new documentary called "Weed." The title "Weed" may sound cavalier, but the content is not.

I traveled around the world to interview medical leaders, experts, growers and patients. I spoke candidly to them, asking tough questions. What I found was stunning.

I know several very ill people who use a prescription pill with MJ components in it (that's what they say, I don't really know) to help them eat. Legalize the stuff, tax it it like cigarettes and consider that drug "war" a wasted effort and unnecessary money pit. Sure would ease the load on the CJS too and save a ton of money.

Like Piers Morgan and Gupta, I "tried" weed and found it to be relatively but not completely harmless.

It HAS to be bad for your lungs, although I have read it actually helped prevent or treat lung cancer... a stretch in my opinion.  Perhaps an oral route (like the infamous brownies) would be better for you, I dunno.

I cannot condone driving under the influence.

The prescription Marinol is not as beneficial as a joint
