    Default CNN’s “Weed” documentary focuses on Colorado

    From The Denver Post:

    Central to the documentary “Weed,” by Sanjay Gupta, is the story of a young Colorado girl, Charlotte Figi, who nearly died without access to medical marijuana. Colorado and Charlotte figure prominently throughout the compelling round-the-world documentary premiering Sunday at 6 p.m. on CNN.
    “When the smoke clears, is marijuana bad for you?” Gupta asks. “Or could pot actually be good for you?” Beautiful shots of the Colorado mountains and random scenes of plentiful pot shops around Denver accent the piece. You’ll recognize the signs. This is where marijuana is sold legally, smoked openly in clubs and at festivals, he notes. The probing report ultimately concludes that “Americans were systematically misled” on the subject of pot.
    Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, touches on everything from the 1950s scare tactics of “Reefer Madness” to the latest medical explorations, from the legal arguments to governmental attitudes. Gupta explains the dramatic upshot: why he changed his mind on the subject of weed.
    Charlotte, who suffers an extreme form of epilepsy, had run out of options. “She had tried everything, except cannabis,” physician Alan Shackleford says.
    “This isn’t go to the pharmacy and pick up your medicine. There was no protocol,” Charlotte’s mother says.
    Off to Teller County to see the Stanley brothers, some of Colorado’s biggest growers and dispensary owners, at an undisclosed mountain location*and welcome to the “Garden of Eden,” where medical marijuana is being manufactured. (The brothers were also featured in a National Geographic documentary last year.)
    It’s a long, strange and touching journey, and one that led Gupta to apologize for his part in misleading the public. He wrote in a CNN editorial this week, “there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works.”
