Alert, medical professionals: television doctor and 2003 People magazine "Sexiest Man Alive" runner-up Sanjay Gupta now supports medical marijuana. Please update your science textbooks.
In a Very Special Episode of Piers Morgan's show last night, Gupta admitted that he has tried the demon weed, though he did not care for it. In an accompanying op-ed, he writes that his work on an upcoming documentary (titled Weed, ha, sure, why not call it 420, "doctor" street slang Gupta????) has caused him to drop his former opposition to the idea of medical marijuana:
We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that.
I hope this article and upcoming documentary will help set the record straight.
Good for you, Sanjay Gupta. We sincerely applaud your intellectual honesty. Now you'll never be Surgeon General.
