Tipping Point for Medical Marijuana?

As Georgia's house has approved a bill to legalize medical marijuana,  CNN's Sanjay Gupta discusses the need for more research in the U.S. to break skewed perception.

Speaking on "New Day" Wednesday, Gupta described the bill as very restrictive and said "This is the therapeutic form of marijuana but not the stuff that gets you high. That's what they're talking about... this restrictive bill moving forward to provide a medicine, potentially, out of marijuana."

See the clip above to learn more and be sure to watch "Weed 2: Cannabis Madness"  when it premieres on CNN Tuesday, March 11, at 10 pm ET.

    I suppose the good doctor is for a drug company acquiring a patent to THC so they can charge exorbitant prices for a drug that can be accessed much cheaper and easier in its natural form. Wonder how much of his portfolio is in pharmaceutical companies??
