TV host Montel Williams plans to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Sacramento. On Monday, he gave reporters a tour of the facility, saying marijuana has helped him cope with multiple sclerosis. “We believe they’re coming in here to be educated,” Williams told News 10 of potential customers. “They’re coming in here so they can feel comfortable, so to make them feel comfortable we’re going to be providing them with more information and more guidance than I believe any facility in this country is attempting to do.”
Williams, who has done some work in recent years for a Sacramento TV station, stressed that the clinic will follow all state laws and provide safe and responsible care to patients.
Former talk show host Montel Williams and sometimes wellness products pitchman is making a new pitch — this time with a new consulting company to serve medical marijuana cooperatives. Williams, who is an advocate for medical marijuana in part because he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, launched the effort Monday at the Abatin Wellness Cooperative in Sacramento.
“Patients should not be left on the battlefield in the heated debate over the issue of medical cannabis,” Williams said in a statement. “I am here to ensure they get the help they need.”
Williams and his team of experts are expected to help providers — including Abatin — create regulated, pharmacy-like environments where patients can feel safe, according to a statement.
