Montel Williams, of talk show fame, is also a medical marijuana patient for his multiple sclerosis. Today, he urged the New York Legislature to pass an MMJ bill, says Toke of the Town.
"New York needs to act now to make marijuana legally available for medical use. Every day that we delay is another day of needless suffering for patients like me all across the state," Williams says.
"Thousands of New Yorkers suffer from serious medical conditions that could benefit from the medical use of marijuana," said Assembly Member Richard N. Gottfried, Chair of the Assembly Health Committee and sponsor of the Assembly medical marijuana bill.
