Montel Williams to Sell (Medical) Marijuana


That’s right, daytime TV fans — instead of dishing out advice to people with drug problems, Montel Williams is getting himself a piece of the medical marijuana pie. The former talk-show host, who has used pot as a part of his multiple sclerosis treatment, led reporters on a tour of, Albatin Wellness Cooperative, the Sacramento dispensary where he is a partner. “Prescription drugs nearly shut down my kidneys. Then a doctor suggested I try medical marijuana,” Williams told The Sacramento Bee. His facility is unique in that it doesn’t display its merchandise or allow patients to smoke it on premises, in an attempt to create “someplace your mother and father could see themselves walk into.” In fact, the place is so classy, the paper notes that visiting the high-security building “feels almost like going to the bank.” [via LA Times ]
