Famous former talk show host Montel Williams is now facing legal problems when TSA agents found drug paraphernalia on his person as he was passing through a security checkpoint at an airport in Milwaukee this month. It was a pipe used for smoking marijuana. Williams ended his long career as a talk show host recently after announcing that he is battling Multiple Sclerosis and is retiring to take care of himself and treat his disease. He has been an advocate against the legalization of marijuana for treatment, like MS. In some places it is legal to have marijuana for medical purposes, but this was not the case in Milwaukee for Mr. Williams.
Though Montel Williams may benefit from medical marijuana, there is a problem with people who “self-medicate” with drugs like marijuana and prescription sedatives. They’re reasoning is not MS, cancer or the other health problems where medical marijuana use has been studied and reflects positive results. They’re usually struggling with life and are depressed. They become addicted to these drugs to help them simply survive their environment. Drug treatment at Vista Taos Renewal Center in New Mexico can help those who feel the need to self-medicate.
