    Marijuana in NOT a medicine. It is a gateway drug that leads to other drug use. You can get the same medical benefits from non-THC derivatives.
    THC related driving deaths have spiked in Colorado and Washington State. Look it up.

    The ORIGINAL Tracy from Hairspray.! Yes people it was a funny campy movie before it became a musical with Ricki Lake, Devine, Debbie Harry from Blonde and Sonny Bono. The non musical original is a riot.

    I kind of missed the Ricki Lake Show. The theme music brought back memories when I would come home from school and watch Ricki Lake Show and the show "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego"

    My heart goes out to Meghan McCain. I'm neither a Republican or a Democrat, I'm for whoever is for the people, and I haven't seen much " for the people" in years. But Ms McCain obviously loved her father very much and you can see the pain on her face knowing that maybe he could have lived longer. The fact that the governments have hid the health benefits of cannabis for so long is so so sad and criminal! The pharmaceutical companies are the new mafia, and a mafia who has ties to the government, sadly!

    Thank you Ricki, you’re a champion. So succinct in distilling the message and the particulars. What a seasoned professional.
    p.s. may not usually agree politically with Megan but seeing her in such anguish during this segment is painful.

    Until someone has suffered from severe pain and/or chronic nausea, I dare they not want to legalize cannabis. Here's the thing: alcohol is legal. Cannabis is a miracle. Who is sitting behind their fat desk and making these decisions? Anything that can help suffering as in cancer, severe pain, nausea, etc., I dare the lawmakers not take a look at such a miracle drug. What's the deal? If could even help create legal jobs. I mean, I just don't understand our government. All the benefits of this drug. I have suffered all my life with chronic severe pain. I've had multiple surgeries. Medicine was made for reasons. I see all these mental illness drugs that have severe side effects, and, according to what I've heard, cannabis has very little side effects. I don't understand why the government won't approve this miracle drug.

    I'm suffering from mental health, lost my job, hard to find another job. I had been on/off all the opioids 4 times, and almost committed suicide the last time I quit those opioids. They all stopped working, I eventually found cannabis and have been doing much, much better. I use for chronic pain (Fusion L5-S1), depression, anxiety, sleeping I'm not 100%, but I'm working on getting back up on my feet.

    Ricki has done many important documentaries since leaving her tv show. Her doc about American infant mortality rates and the birthing process in America blew me away and was truly enlightening. I recommend it to both men and women. It’s called “The Business of Being Born.”
    A wonderful woman with a noble mission. ✌️❤️

    Could Ricky please replace Megan on the show. We don’t need her, we have Abbie we have Anna. If she wants to be the panelists that doesn’t listen she should go back to fox news or stick to pop culture. And I say this as a Megan fan, I used to watch her back when she would fill-in for Elizabeth Hasselbeck, that’s the Megan I want, but since she’s gone and not coming back give me Ricky.
