Long-time host of “The View”, Whoopi Goldberg, came out in support of pediatric medical marijuana in her interview with High Times.
“When we talk about marijuana and I hear people say, ‘Well, what about the children?’ Yeah, what about the children?”
“These parents are being treated like criminals — because, as a last resort and after much research, they’ve decided that cannabis may help their kid . . . They know they may face jail time — but these are their kids, and they will do everything they can to bring peace to the convulsions or calm after the chemotherapy.”
Whoopi Goldberg has been known to smoke some weed, but she states that nowadays most of her marijuana use is medical for her glaucoma.
