The Incredible Impact of Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s Medical Marijuana Special

NEW YORK: A little over a week ago, Dr. Sanjay Gupta aired a one hour CNN special on medical marijuana. The impact of his special and an op-ed that he wrote for CNN – where he apologized for his past opposition to medical marijuana – has been incredible!

In the run-up to Gupta’s CNN special, his op-ed made national news and was shared more than half a million times on Facebook. Just a few years ago, he came out against medical marijuana. Yet in his op-ed he expressed regret for not studying the issue more closely and for believing the government’s propaganda.

Dr. Gupta’s show also played a critical role in improving New Jersey’s medical marijuana law. A major focus of the special is a young girl who needs medical marijuana to relieve her constant, debilitating seizures. Coincidently, there is legislation under consideration in New Jersey to expand its medical marijuana law so that minors can access it. The issue was sympathetically covered by Gupta, and within days, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was being asked about the legislation. Just a few days later Christie committed to signing it.

The latest manifestation of Gupta’s impact came today when President Obama’s press secretary was asked whether Gupta’s change of heart has caused the president to re-examine his position on medical marijuana. As you might expect, Obama’s spokesman sidestepped the question, claiming he couldn’t respond because he hadn’t read Gupta’s column.

CNN Attempting to Shut Down Gupta Kush

NEW YORK: Last week we reported that Boulder-based Helping Hands Dispensary had named a new organic strain medical marijuana after Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who recently made a very public reversal regarding his stance on the pros of cannabis.

Evidently, 24 hours after the Helping Hands press release was published, CNN contacted the dispensary demanding they stop sales of Gupta Kush.

“We may have to change the name,” owner Jeff Kless told Animalnewyork.com  “CNN phoned us and asked us to remove it. I think we’ll leave it alone for the weekend and see what happens.”

No word yet as to whether CNN followed through with an actually cease and desist order.
