Montel Williams Blasts Ad Opposing Medical Use of Marijuana

An outspoken medical marijuana proponent, talk-show host Montel Williams lashed out this week at an Arkansas ad against a ballot proposal, calling it “racist.”

According to CBS affiliate KHTV in Little Rock, Williams told a crowd in the Arkansas capital Thursday that the 30-second spot opposing a ballot initiative that would legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes is “the most egregiously false, racist statement you’ve ever seen in your life.”
