Montel Williams Opening Pot Shop in Sacramento

Television host Montel Williams announced plans Monday to open a medical marijuana dispensary in California’s capital city. From the Sacramento Bee:

In a news conference at the newly renovated offices of the former Capital Wellness Center, Williams spoke about his own battle with multiple sclerosis and why he turned to marijuana to alleviate near-constant neurological pain.

“Prescription drugs nearly shut down my kidneys. Then a doctor suggested I try medical marijuana,” said Williams, who credits pot for improving his health and well-being.

The former host of the long-running Montel Williams Show emphasized his dispensary’s professionalism and focus on patient care. “I want this to be someplace your mother and father could see themselves walk into.”
