In his first report, Weed: Dr. Sanjay Gupta Presents, Dr. Gupta highlights a brief history of marijuana, and talks intensively about Charlotte Figi.
Charlotte has become a poster-child not only for CBD but for pediatric cannabis use. After Charlotte’s heart stopped several times and she became catatonic Charlotte’s parents, Matt and Paige Figi, felt they had no other choice but to turn to medical marijuana. He goes on to talk about the negative effects of marijuana, especially with regards and children and driving. After this he goes to Israel where medical marijuana is prescribed to over 11,000 people for everything from PTSD, and dementia to cancer.
In his second installment, WEED 2: Cannabis Madness, Dr. Sanjay Gupta highlights marijuana refugees who moved to Colorado for marijuana to save their children.
The documentary highlights the Willson family who made national news when they fought against Governor Christie of New Jersey for their right to give their two year old cannabis. Even after the governor passed a more lenient medical marijuana bill they still couldn’t get access to a high CBD (cannabidiol) strain. After they finally get access to a moderately high CBD strain in New Jersey… It doesn’t work. The Wilson family decides that they have to move to Colorado.
He continues to talk about the complications between state and federal laws; how families become trapped in Colorado because their home states would not only arrest the parents, but take away their children because giving your child a Schedule 1 controlled substance is considered child abuse.
