Check out this great episode of TYT’s “The Point” —
From the video description: “What is behind the war on cannabis (both medicinal and recreational) and will marijuana ever be legalized? What are the effects of smoking weed? Where does President Obama stand? John Fugelsang (Political Comedian) leads this week’s panel on ‘The Point’ to discuss these issues and more with Cornell Reid (Comedian), Dave Brian (Editor – The 420 Times), and Sam Humeid (Owner – Perennial Holistic Wellness Center). Special thanks to Steve Elliott (Author – “The Little Black Book of Marijuana”), and Dr. Igor Grant (Professor of Psychiatry – UC San Diego) for sending in points.
Thanks to townsquare for posting the video.
Check out this FULL LENGTH documentary, A NORML LIFE (2011) – all about the state of medical marijuana in the US today.
From the description: “A NORML LIFE documentary on the current state of medical marijuana in America. Personal stories from patients, doctors and caregivers verify its medical effectiveness while leading activist rally support to end prohibition.
Chris Burry …. associate producer
Peter Darling …. associate producer
Rod Pitman …. executive producer
Doug Ross …. producer
A NORML Life, goes beyond the recitation of facts and figures to capture the beating heart of the legalization movement, in all its passion, its commitment and its excitement.
It’s an extraordinary job by Pitman, producer Doug Ross and a rich cast of cannabis characters including Seattle Hempfest founder Vivian McPeak (who, near the beginning of the show, rightly says America’s marijuana laws are “fixing a problem that never existed,”), and it wastes no time in going for the emotional resonance which is the reason many of us are involved in this movement.
The documentary, which compellingly tells the proud story of advocates fighting for the legalization of marijuana, was released by Cinema Libre Studios on DVD last week. The film presents a strong case that the use of medical marijuana is effective, and that it is a safe alternative to pharmaceutical medicines.
Disclaimer: This documentary and information is for entertainment only. Marijuana laws vary from State to State and Country to Country. In many growing and possessing marijuana is illegal. By no means is this an endorsement to break or violate any laws.”

Thanks to TYT for posting this video — From the video description:
“In what could be a turning point in the city’s seemingly unending battle to regulate the distribution of medical marijuana, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to ban all pot dispensaries, while also opening the door to possibly let some remain. Under the ban, all of the 762 dispensaries registered in the city will be sent letters ordering them to shut down immediately. Those that don’t comply may face legal action from the city…”.* Is this connected to the federal crackdown from the Obama Administration? Cenk Uygur, Douglas Caballero, and Cara Santa Maria break it down on The Young Turks.

Here is another great cannabis news video from The Young Turks! Misinformed people everywhere believe cannabis is a gateway drug and will cause you to move on to other, worse, harder drugs. This has been proven to be false time and time again, now check out this video as TYT discusses it further.
Great report from The Young Turks showing how poll numbers for marijuana legalization continue to increase exponentially. The War on Drugs is so pointless… SOOOO POINTLESS.
Yes, it’s true! And it wasn’t even recently! Back in 1988, as explained here by The Young Turks, the DEA stated that in order to die from smoking marijuana, you would have to smoke 1500 POUNDS in 15 MINUTES. Impossible. Therefore, marijuana CAN NOT KILL YOU!
Here’s a great video from The Young Turks about a 20-year study done by the Journal of the American Medical Association in which researchers studied the effects of cigarette smoke and marijuana smoke on the lungs. The results will surprise you!
This is pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
Text from original video: “Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks reports on medical marijuana dispensaries in California claiming that American Express no longer allows customers to use their cards on marijuana. She also shares AmEx’s response.
