No Miss TV: CNN ‘Inside Man’ with Morgan Spurlock, Marijuana fight tonight (VIDEO)

No Miss TV spotlight: Tonight the premiere of “Inside Man” with Morgan Spurlock takes a balanced approach to the “should they stay or should they go” political wars over legal Marijuana dispensaries of California.
The existing conundrum in California is over existing pot shops in compliance with voter approved laws, while Big Pharma-backed politicians are hell bent on closing them down amidst contradictory state and federal laws.
The episode is a great watch and informative, with Spurlock constantly denied access to US Attorney for NorCal, Melinda Haag for commentary on the subject. We hear first-hand from people with severe afflictions from mental illness, war and disease how medically prescribed cannabis is their best, most effective cure for pain and sleep aid. The shop highlighted in the premiere episode is Harborside Health Center of Oakland, CA., operating within the laws of the state, under threat of closure for perceived illegal or abusive activity by some state and federal politicans.
