Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a neurosurgeon and CNN’s chief medical correspondent, spoke out in August 2013 apologizing for previously making negative comments about marijuana. Later that year, he launched a documentary that aired on CNN, called ‘Weed,’ in which he traveled around the world to collect scientific and anecdotal evidence of the medical validity of cannabinoids. Since its original airing, the Weed series has quickly become one of the most-viewed medical marijuana documentaries in the world.
Weed 3 will air this Sunday at 9PM EST on CNN with an anticipated special guest attracting more attention to the series than ever before. Sources are reporting President Obama will be giving his full support of medical marijuana, as well as discussing his views on drug abuse and incarceration.
