CNN: The Case For and Against Pot

CNN’s Anderson Cooper will take a ‘closer look’ at marijuana users starting Monday night in a special week-long series called ‘America’s High: The case for and against pot’.

Is there a case for legalization? We traveled around the country, met with people on all sides of the issue, walked through medical marijuana dispensaries and got a clear idea of the different kinds of marijuana out there.

And what about using marijuana for medical purposes? Hear Melissa Etheridge’s take on the issue. She says it helped her through her battle with cancer. But there’s the other side too. We will speak to a 34-year-old teacher who is bi-polar who used marijuana for treatment but says it ruined her life. She tells Randi Kaye why she thinks marijuana is addictive and how she says the drug nearly killed her.

Nearly killed her, eh?

That quote is from the Anderson Cooper 360° blog, with this photo and caption:

Randi Kaye visits a marijuana garden where 7,000 plants were taken down that day — that’s a street value of about $500,000.Randi Kaye visits a marijuana garden where 7,000 plants were taken down that day — that’s a street value of about $500,000.

The show starts at 10pm EST. Click here to post questions they say they will try to answer on the show.

CNN has brought the issue up more than a few times lately. Let’s hope they keep it up.

    CNN has been on this topic a lot, and I’m sure it’ll get popular with other stations once more people start tuning in.
