Dr. Sanjay Gupta, chief medical correspondent for the Cannabis News Network, changes his mind about medical marijuana. (3:33)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> John: WELCOME BACK.

NOW, ONE OF THE CHALLENGES OF

THIS JOB IS TO ENGAGE THE

AUDIENCE IN SOMETHING THEY HAVE

NO INHERENT INTEREST IN.

THAT'S GOING TO BE TOUGH AGAIN

TONIGHT BECAUSE SADLY WE'RE

ABOUT TO TALK ABOUT MARIJUANA.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

GROW UP!

NOW NOT NERVE THE MEDICAL

COMMUNITY IS A BIG FAN OF IT,

BUT LAST THURSDAY THAT MAY HAVE

CHANGED THANKS TO AMERICA'S

FAVORITE DOCTOR-- NOT HIM--

(LAUGHTER)

I'M TALKING ABOUT THE REAL

McDREAMY.

>> DR. SANJAY GUPTA CHANGES HIS

MIND ON WEED.

>> SANJAY, YOU WERE VERY

CRITICAL OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA

FOR A LONG TIME.

YOU'VE CHANGED YOUR MIND.

TELL US WHY.

>> John: WHOO!

SANJAY GUPTA GETTING ON THE MARY

JANE TRAIN!

CHIEF MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT OF

THE CANNABIS NEWS NETWORK!

(LAUGHTER)

SMOKING SOME WEED WITH AARON

BURNOUT AND WOLF BLITZ-HER.

ISANJ, WHAT CHANGED YOUR MIND

ABOUT THE GANJ?

>> WE'VE BEEN TERRIBLY AND

SYSTEMATICALLY MISFLED THIS

COUNTRY FOR SOME TIME.

I TOOK THE D.E.A. AT THEIR WORD

WHEN THEY SAID IT'S A SCHEDULE 1

SUBSTANCE AND HAS NO MEDICAL

APPLICATION.

>> John: WAIT, YOU TOOK THE DRUG

ENFORCEMENT AGENCY AT THEIR

BOARD?

IS THERE ANY OTHER MEDICAL

MISINFORMATION THAT YOU MAY

STILL BELIEVE JUST BECAUSE

SOMEONE TOLD YOU?

YOU KNOW YOU DON'T ACTUALLY GO

BLIND FROM JACKING IT, RIGHT?

(LAUGHTER)

BECAUSE I JUST FOUND THAT OUT

TWO WEEKS AGO AND IT'S TURNED MY

LIFE AROUND.

ANYWAY, DR. G., PLEASE CONTINUE

YOUR REPORT ON WEED!

WHAT'S NEXT?

A REPORT ON TASTY MONEY CHIS?

>> VERY EARLY STUDIES ON MICE

HAVE SHOWING THE POTENTIAL OF

MARE WAN UNANIMOUS TO KILL

CANCER CELLS.

HE'S USING MARIJUANA TO HELP HIM

WITH THE PAIN AND NAUSEA FROM

CHEMOTHERAPY.

RESIDENTS LEER USING MARIJUANA

FOR PAIN, LOSS OF APPETITE,

PARKINSON'S AND DEMENTIA.

(LAUGHTER)

>> John: OH, RIGHT, BECAUSE

MARIJUANA HAS REAL MEDICAL

BENEFITS AND CAN BE PRESCRIBED

BY DOCTORS.

IN FACT, DISPENSARIES SELL

DIFFERENT STRENGTHS TO TREAT

DIFFERENT PROBLEMS AND, ON THAT

NOTE, IF YOU WANT THIS DRUG AND

ITS MEDICAL BENEFITS TO BE TAKEN

SERIOUSLY HOW ABOUT ADULTING UP

THE MAZE A LITTLE BIT.

THAT WAY A SICK OLD MAN DOESN'T

HAVE TO A QUARTER OUNCE OF

RAINBOW DIESEL FUNKADELIC

CHEDDAR HARMONY.

(LAUGHTER)

JUST A SUGGESTION.

BUT I HAVE TO GIVE CNN CREDIT

WHERE IT'S DUE.

SANJAY GUPTA COPED TO HIS ERROR,

THE WEED SPECIAL TALKED ABOUT

THE LEGITIMATE USES OF MARIJUANA

AND THEY ANSWERED THE QUESTION

THAT NO ONE HAS BEEN ASKING:

WHAT'S PIERS MORGAN LIKE WHEN

HE'S HIGH?

>> I'M GOING TO MAKE A SHOCKING

REVELATION HERE.

I TRIED CANNABIS WHEN I WAS A

YOUNGER LAD AND I'VE ALSO HAD TO

HAVE VICODIN WHEN I BROKE SOME

RIBS FALLING OFF A SEGUE IN

SANTA MONICA.

I CAN TELL YOU, IT WAS THE

VICODIN WHICH I WAS PRESCRIBED

BY MY DOCTOR WHICH GAVE ME A

MASSIVELY HIGHER HIGH THAN THE

CANNABIS EVER DID.

>> John: OKAY, THIS IS

IMPORTANT.

I WOULD LIKE TO PERSONALLY OFFER

$10,000 IN REWARD TO ANYONE WHO

CAN BRING ME FOOTAGE OF PIERS

MORGAN FALLING OFF THAT SEGWAY.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

I MEAN IT, NEITHER VICODIN NOR

MARIJUANA NOR THE PURIST ECSTASY

CAN BRING
