As I’m sure a lot of you know by now, this past week, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta surprisingly made an about-face on his stance on cannabis, specifically using it for medicinal purposes. CNN aired a fantastic documentary on Sunday in which Dr. Gupta meets with various patients around the country who have used cannabis to treat their ailments, most of which showing that cannabis is truly the only thing that helps. It’s a fantastic episode and well worth the watch. For more information, also check out this great article on CNN about the headlines this documentary has made this week – let’s keep this conversation going!
Residents of Delaware voted to pass medical marijuana legislation and it was signed into law in 2011. The problem is, 2 years later, there are still no dispensaries or any access to medical marijuana for patients. This is a heinous oversight as patients are left having to resort to illegal methods to obtain their medicine.
This is similar to situations in other medical marijuana states, namely New Jersey. In 2010, former governor Corzine signed NJ’s medical marijuana law before Governor Christie took office. It is now 2013 and there have only been a total of TWO permits issued to dispensaries in the entire state of NJ. Clearly, these states need to stop trying to ignore the laws we citizens voted to put into place!
