Weed: Dr. Sanjay Gupta Reports

weed.jpg

Premieres on CNN Sunday, August 11 at 8 pm ET

Once considered a more underground activity, marijuana has become increasingly popular over the years, resulting in legalization to grow, sell and smoke it in states like Colorado and Washington. Cannabis has become one of the most controversial topics in America, but just decades ago it was a legitimate medication on U.S. formulary. No matter the circumstance, the debate over marijuana still exists and one question remains the same. Is marijuana bad for you or, could it actually be good for you?

In “Weed” – a one hour documentary premiering on Sunday, August 11th at 8 pm ET – CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta spends nearly a year traveling the globe to shed light on the debate.

While it is part of a lifestyle for some, it is a lifeline for others including five-year-old Charlotte Figi. Charlotte suffers from a rare condition called Dravet’s syndrome, making her prone to up to 300 seizures per week. Like many people who use marijuana for medicinal purposes, parents Paige and Matt Figi tried every other option before resorting to this type of prescription. Sanjay follows their journey.

Sanjay takes you to Colorado where weed dispensaries and pot cafes have become the norm. Dealers, doctors, users – Gupta meets with various people, like the Figis, offering a raw insight to what’s been dubbed “The Green Rush.” He also talks to experts about whether marijuana can be addictive—and whether it can contribute to long-term damage in the brain.

Sanjay’s final stops are in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem where he meets with some of the pioneers behind marijuana study, offering access to decades of innovative and cutting-edge research.

Weed: Sanjay Gupta Reports will replay Sunday, August 11th at 11:00 pm ET and Monday, August 12th at 2:00 am ET.

Dr. Gupta tells it like he sees it. He is not delving in too far either. Hopefully other doctors will take this and at least do real studies on marijuana.

You have to at least let the scientists have the stuff to run tests on instead you get stuff like Spice and Bath Salts - and a whole lot of people in prison for pot and a whole US private prison system with the goal of locking up as many people as they can.

Until the federal government releases the restrictions on Marijuana it will not be studied right and that is a damn shame since so many Americans use it. Shame on you Government. Freaking make it right. Federal Government, let the states fund real Marijuana studies and get out of the Marijuana Issue completely. You freaking suck at it. You fucktards do not even deserve in it. States are not much better, but at least they will bend to the will of there constituents eventually.

Cut the federal funding for all this BS though and watch it crumble down.

Vastly intelligent whale-like being from the stars
absurd that marijuana is illegal and alcohol is not

if history chose marijuana instead of alcohol and the two drugs were reversed, i wonder if alcohol would be in the similar position that marijuana is in now

Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!
Oh lol Anyway

Alcohol was illegal before, It was mainly durring prohibition(1920's-1933) But even now it is illegal in many circumstances, during or Just before driving a car etc.. lol

Alcohol in the Twentieth Century

Resistance to alcohol grew during the nineteenth century. Social conservatives worried about the effects of alcohol abuse on individuals and communities. In 1874, the first national convention of the Women's Christian Temperance Union was held. The Union promoted the movement for prohibition in the United States and tried to shut down saloons. They blamed male drinking for prostitution, child abuse, and poverty.

Prohibition
The Temperance Movement steadily gained a huge following worldwide, resulting in bans on alcohol. Canada, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia/Soviet Union, and the United States all enacted bans on alcohol in the first decades of the twentieth century. In the United States, the Eighteenth Amendment prohibited the sale and production of alcoholic beverages beginning in 1920.

You can change this now in User CP.
I just don't understand why the DEA can just stop it from being rescheduled without any sort of system of checks and balances. I mean, a justice of the Supreme Court ruled to have this shit rescheduled some twenty-odd years ago and the DEA kept it from happening then, and we've done nothing with the system to try to change their degree of control. The current director of the DEA is just as pig-headed as the last, which means we're gonna have to wait for some sort of structural change or a director with a more open mind for any hopes of federal legalization or decriminalization.

TheHelper's right; the federal government really needs to rein it in and let the states do things for themselves.
