Montel Williams Among Contenders for License to Dispense Medical Marijuana in D.C

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The D.C. Department of Health will soon name more than 50 contenders who are approved to apply for a license to grow or sell medical marijuana in Washington.
The group includes former TV talk show host Montel Williams, along with a competitive bass fisherman, a Chinatown businessman and others.
The health department will name the approved contenders this week, according to a published report. They will be able to apply for one of 15 licenses. The district plans to announce the winners early next year.
Williams says he hopes to change perceptions about medical marijuana in Congress. But opening his clinic would come with a risk.
Applicants must recite a statement saying they understand a city license doesn't authorize them to break federal law, which still makes medical marijuana illegal.

Former talk show host, Montel Williams, has long since been an outspoken proponent for medical marijuana. Now the 55-year-old says the U.S. could learn a thing or two from Israel and their liberal stance on pot.
After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, Williams has made no secrets about his use of medical marijuana to relieve pain caused by the disease–something that frustrates him within our country. He is now meeting with legislators, scientists and doctors to find out more about Isreal’s approach, which he told the Associated Press is forward-thinking and it works.
We need to get out of the dark ages and into the new ages. Not every patient can use cannabis, but for those who can – why deny it?

TEMPLE, Ga. (AP) – Authorities say hip-hop star Soulja Boy is facing a drug charge after police stopped his rental car in west Georgia and found marijuana.
Temple Police Chief Tim Shaw tells the Associated Press that police stopped the rented Cadillac Escalade early Tuesday. He says officers found marijuana and guns inside.
The artist, who was booked under the name DeAndre Cortez Way, was brought to the Carroll County Jail on a felony charge of marijuana possession.
