Recently Whoopi Goldberg talked with High Times magazine and touched on a pretty controversial topic of medical marijuana being used by sick children. Many feel that marijuana shouldn’t be administered to kids but some parents have decided to use the drug as a treatment to help thier children suffering from sickness. While touching on the topic, Goldberg explained her understanding of marijuana being used to help kids who may need it.
In a candid interview with High Times magazine, marijuana-loving “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg, who suffers from glaucoma, says she only smokes these days for medical purposes.“When we talk about marijuana and I hear people say, ‘Well, what about the children?’ Yeah, what about the children?” She adds of families who have given their children cannabis, “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.”
Currently Whoopi is filming newly announced pilot ‘Delores & Jermaine‘.
