CNN’s chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta apologized last night for being a participant in what he called the “misleading” of Americans over the potential benefits of medical marijuana.
Promoting his new documentary Weed (more on that later today in another piece of mine), Gupta told Piers Morgan last night that after a year of intensive research into medical marijuana, he has discovered that “we have been terribly and systematically misled in this country for some time.”
“And I did part of that misleading,” he added, noting that he has apologized for his previous opinion that he would never support the legalizing of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
“I didn’t look far enough, I didn’t look deep enough,” he lamented further. “I didn’t look at labs in other countries that are doing some incredible research, I didn’t listen to the chorus of patients who said ‘Not only does marijuana work for me, it’s the only thing that works for me.’”
