Even Montel Williams Has Trouble Selling Medical Marijuana
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Thu, December, 1st 2011 by THCFinder
Montel Williams has been many things in his career, and medical marijuana patient, advocate and entrepreneur is one. Having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 13 years ago, Williams has used and fought for medical marijuana in eight of the 16 states that currently allow it.
Yesterday, he brought his personal story and celebrity status to bear upon Ward 5, where he hopes to set up two cultivation centers and further the cause of medical marijuana not far from where he grew up in Baltimore.
Standing in front of 60 people in the basement of a Baptist Church just off of Rhode Island Avenue NE last night, Williams used his well-honed skills as a talk show to lay out the case for medical marijuana, both personally and politically. He spoke of his own affliction, and how despite popular conceptions and fears about marijuana, it has significant medicinal value for people with a variety of ailments.
"I try my best to do the best I can to keep a positive image forward for cameras, but most people here have no clue what I live with on a daily basis," he said, leaning against a table to head off what he said was persistent pains that flared up in the evening hours.
Speaking of his advocacy for medical marijuana across the country, though, Williams admitted that he had spent more time arguing for program's than he did observing what came of them after-the-fact.
"As I've looked back behind me, I realized that I'm also part of the problem, because i created an opportunity for some people who don't give a damn about people like myself, who are patients," he said.
"After paying very close attention to almost every municipality where they've passed these laws, I've taken a look and about a year-and-a-half ago got fed up and got to the point that i decided and was actually challenged by a city councilmember in Los Angeles. 'You gotta put your face where your mouth is. If nobody is going to do it right and you claim to have the way to do it right, why don't you step up to the plate and show us how to do it right?' Well, I've done that," said Williams, who also operates a cultivation center and dispensary in Sacramento, California.

HollywoodNews.com: Miley Cyrus’ rep is doing some clean up as the young star recently commented during her birthday that she is a “stoner.”
Her rep is now commenting that the birthday matter was all a simple joke, states UsMagazine.com. “It’s all been taken out of context. The cake was a joke and Miley’s response was intended to be sarcastic,” her rep commented.
Miley reportedly received a Bob Marley cake and commented, “You know you’re a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much f-cking weed!”
Miley did get in some hot water back when she was caught on tape supposedly smoking salvia.
Do you think it was all a joke?
Montel Williams Among Contenders for License to Dispense Medical Marijuana in D.C
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, November, 16th 2011 by THCFinder
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.
Montel Williams On Marijuana: Why Deny It?
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, November, 1st 2011 by THCFinder
Montel continues his quest to help fight for marijuana activists in hopes of someday getting marijuana legalized for patients who need it like himself.
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?
