After a year of working on the CNN documentary “Weed“, CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta has changed his previous position on marijuana. Further, in an August 8th CNN article titled “Why I changed my mind on weed“, Gupta offers the following apology; “We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that.”
Apology accepted, Dr. Gupta. And all due respect for your willingness to learn and then speak out publicly about your findings. Maybe some politicians and government officials will be inclined to do their own homework on this issue now.
Weed will replay Sunday, August 11th at 11:00 pm ET and Monday, August 12th at 2:00 am ET.
Dr. Gupta has created quite a stir, as reported from various angles below.
