Is marijuana a dangerous drug that can lead to brain damage and addiction, or is it a miracle drug that can alleviate pain and fight disease? Earlier this year Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a physician and CNN medical analyst released a documentary that asked these questions.

Even if what they do isn’t very good, many of the criminals I speak to are really very good at what they do. They often relish the opportunity to show that off to someone who shows them a little interest. (source)
