Many know Montel Williams as a pitchman for several products, and for his nationally syndicated television talk show.
But Williams will now be entering a new field as he’s opening a medical marijuana dispensary in Sacramento, California.
In a news conference this past weekend, Williams spoke about his battles with multiple sclerosis and how marijuana has helped him with the illness.
“We’ve been caught up in culture surrounding medical marijuana that’s 20 years old,” Williams said. “While adhering to every single state law, we want to provide safe access for patients and really medicalize this. Patients should be put first.”
Just a few months ago, Williams was acquitted of carrying a marijuana pipe on a plane.
