Birth Name: Montel Williams
Birth Place: Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Williams made his dramatic debut in the TV movie "Perry Mason: The Case of the Telltale Talk Show Host" (NBC, 1993) and later starred in the short-lived CBS series "Matt Waters" (1996) as a concerned and caring high school teacher. While his daytime show thrived, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and he began to actively manage the disease. He occasionally continued to dabble in acting, most notably with a recurring part on a few episodes of the military series "JAG" (CBS, 1995-2005). In 2008, "The Montel Williams Show" was canceled, and he moved on to a stint on the soap opera "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952-2009). Eventually turning to infomercials, Williams later revisited acting with ... Continue Bio >>

If @repfleming and Tony Perkins really want to make the case medical marijuana leads to meth use, let them make that case to the multitude of veterans with PTSD for whom nothing else worked? Let them make that case to moms dying of cancer who want nothing more than to have their last few months free from nausea and pain to spend with their families. Let them make that case, I would suspect they lack the courage to do so, because they both know the argument medical marijuana produces increase meth addiction is merely yet another set of baseless fear tactics that ignores everything from science to sociological studies which prove the opposite.
Rather than stigmatize untold millions of Americans suffering from debilitating illness, like I am, how about we tell the truth and work together on polices that make safe access to medicinal marijuana a reality while always being sensitive to the abuse potential?
The meth argument is so ridiculous it doesn't warrant a response. The next argument is usually about medical marijuana increasing teen use (as a father, I'm sensitive to that). A well controlled study found that in MEDICAL marijuana states, teen use of marijuana stayed flat or slightly decreased.
Let's have a real conversation. If we're this worried about marijuana, let us ban alcohol and tobacco the same way. Unlike alcohol and tobacco, marijuana has proven medicinal uses. The Congressman has been rightly resolute in his support for Israel - I wonder if he's aware that the dispositive research on marijuana as medicine is largely the result of the work of Israeli researchers. Why? Because in that country they put science ahead of politics.

Every high school student needs to see this, especially you athletes. His name is Nolan Burch and he was 18. He died after a college fraternity hazing - he was found hours later already dead. I realize initiations and hazing have become an ingrained part of the culture in the Greek system and in many locker rooms. This is another tragic example of what can happen. These decisions can impact the rest of your life - whomever bought the alcohol could be charged with a crime - whomever let this go one could as well. Here's the lesson - one bad decision can change your life. One thing that has to be made clear - if you see a peer get out of control, don't hesitate - call a parent, call 911 - if you are afraid to be "that guy" think of it this way - is it better to be "that guy" and have a friend alive the next day or risk being a headline like this? Part of the reason the drinking age is 21 is because managing the consequences of drinking requires adult decision making. Everyone at that party will carry this burden the rest of their lives and that doesn't even begin to compare with the pain of a family who lost an 18 year old who had nothing but potential. Why did this happen? Because we're all a little too worried about "being cool," "looking cool." There's nothing cool about this kind of thing, and when you participate you're betting everything goes perfectly - it rarely does. RIP Nolan.
