Colorado -- CNN's Sanjay Gupta toured Colorado's medical marijuana outlets in a documentary last summer, "Weed," talking about the medicinal uses of the drug and apologizing for joining the chorus of medical professionals who've given the public bad advice about marijuana over the years.He touched a nerve. Now CNN and Gupta are back, with "Weed2," tracking "medical marijuana refugees" to Colorado.
He's not backing down on medical marijuana, Gupta wrote in a CNN online editorial Wednesday. "I'm doubling down.""Weed 2: Cannabis Madness: Dr. Sanjay Gupta Reports" premieres March 11 at 8 p.m. on CNN. This time, Gupta follows several families with sick kids as the travel to Colorado. Some have given up on ineffectual government-approved epilepsy drugs and are in search of the only thing that seems to work to reduce seizures: the low-THC "Charlotte's Web" strain of cannabis.To illustrate the quandary, we are re-introduced to the Wilson faily of New Jersey. CNN replays the 2013 news footage of the father of Vivian Wilson, a 2-year-old girl suffering from chronic seizures, as he confronts New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. "Please don't let my daughter die," he pleads, asking Christie to legalize medical marijuana in the state. Gupta spends time in the Wilson home, chronicles Vivian's seizures, then follows the family to DIA.

There is a lot of data being lost . 
Those of us who have benefited from this plant for decades are "living baselines" for MJ researchers. Tests need to be done to answer basic questions of impairment/lack of impairment and at what blood levels.Questions need to be answered that cannot be asked under the present misunderstanding that MJ is an opiate and deserving of Schedule 1. Dr. Wecht is right.Asylum? This IS the Asylum!

This is important.These "Important" things don't seem to fall dead in the water like they always used to.Somebody's power to hide the truth is diminishing.
