I am Dr. Sanjay Gupta, neurosurgeon and Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN. I'm doubling down on the legalization of medical marijuana. AMA
Hey there Redditors -- Sanjay here! I’m a practicing neurosurgeon… CNN’s chief medical correspondent… a husband, dad to 3 beautiful daughters… and according to some of my twitter followers, they jokingly dubbed me the “Wolf of WEED Street” (more on that later!). I’m in Colorado today reporting LIVE on CNN from a marijuana dispensary and grow facility. In between my live shots, I’m going to be answering your questions. To confirm, I’m Dr_SanjayGupta on Reddit and @DrSanjayGupta on Twitter.
Stepping away to do a quick liveshot from CNN from the dispensary I’m at in Colorado. Be back in a few to answer a few final questions!
Redditors! I really enjoyed this conversation today. Thank you for sharing your stories, for asking thoughtful questions and for your role in helping break down the stigma surround medical marijuana. It’s important to focus on the science. And the science is now clearer than ever. Let’s continue this conversation tonight! I’ll be tweeting LIVE (@drsanjaygupta) this evening during the debut of my follow-up Weed documentary -- ‘Weed 2: Cannabis Madness’ debuts tonight at 10p ET on CNN. Thank you again, Reddit. This AMA was the highlight of my day here in Colorado. Have me back again sometime?
