CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta apologized for “systematically misleading Americans” about medical marijuana on Piers Morgan last night. Gupta, who as recently as 2009 wrote an anti-medical marijuana op-ed for TIME Magazine, has published a piece entitled “Why I Changed My Mind On Weed” in anticipation of the release of his documentary “WEED”, set to air at 8 p.m. ET August 11 on CNN.
“I think it’s irresponsible of the medical community not to offer [cannabis] as an alternative.”
-Dr. Sanjay Gupta
Update: Watch the full Weed documentary below.
As for his statement towards the end pertaining to how cannabis made him personally anxious, perhaps Dr. Gupta didn’t try the right strain.
