SHOCKING VIDEO: CNN”s Doctor Sanjay Gupta Now Wants Weed Legalized

CNN’s chief medical expert Sanjay Gupta announced Wednesday night that he has reversed his blanket opposition to marijuana use.

sanjay_guptaSpeaking to Piers Morgan, Gupta said he had previously helped to “mislead” the American public about the effects of the drug.

“I have apologized for some of the earlier reporting because I think, you know, we’ve been terribly and systematically misled in this country for some time,” he said. “And I did part of that misleading.”

He also wrote an op-ed called “Why I Changed My Mind On Weed.” In it, he said that, while he had formerly derided medical marijuana supporters, he had done research that had shown him how beneficial it could be:

I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed marijuana as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof. Surely, they must have quality reasoning as to why marijuana is in the category of the most dangerous drugs that have “no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse.”

They didn’t have the science to support that claim, and I now know that when it comes to marijuana neither of those things are true. It doesn’t have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works.

  1. Thanks Dr. Gupta for being the good human you are to admit when you have made a mistake. I have more respect for him now than I did before reading this article.
    Now, many marijuana users have been saying the exact same thing that pot has many beneficial uses. Also, it is not the “gateway” drug, alcohol has that distinction. For example, I have been a regular marijuana smoker for the past 45 years and quite enjoy it. I have never, ever used any other drugs, in my life other than medical prescribed medication. I don’t drink beer nor alcohol, but I like to relax with pot and it make me feel good and heighten my creative juices that enable me to produce my best artworks. That is a fact.
    Marijuana should be legalize as soon as possible. If it is so important that something must be illegal- let’s make Monsanto and their GMO seeds the illegality since far more harm will be visited upon the body by this poison than could ever be done smoking pot.
    Dare anyone to prove me wrong with a $100 bet. Any takers?
