All this week on Anderson Cooper 360 he’ll be covering many aspects of marijuana, both medicinal and recreational, in a series of special segments titled “America’s High: The Case for and Against Pot.” In one of the segments Anderson will interview different people involved in the the medical marijuana world such as the owner of “The Farmacy”, which is one of the most well known dispensaries in Southern California, offering medicinal marijuana and and edibles for patients. In part of Mondays’ segment for the series, Anderson spoke with recording artist Melissa Etheridge about her battle with cancer and how medicinal marijuana helped her get through the debilitating side effects of her chemo, without having to resort to chemical laden pain prescriptions that are highly addictive and themselves carry a great deal of side effects.
I’m pretty fuckin pumped that people are finally beginning to give our cause some mainstream attention because every bit of awareness and truth that we can spread counts. Though im not in the slightest a fan of Ellen Degeneres Melissa Etheridge’s music I can completely respect her courage and effort that it takes to be a public and vocal supporter of marijuana. I’d like to send a big toke and exhale to Etheridge and her baby mama…yaw yaw
