Weeds: Marijuana isn't medical

Even before Weeds satirized Colorado's medical marijuana scene in 2010, the local MMJ industry has had a love-hate relationship with the Showtime program, whose run ends this season. However, last night's episode, spotlighted in a clip below, is likely to inspire only the latter reaction among folks in the biz thanks to an impassioned speech about how cannabis really isn't medical at all.
