CNN labels Paul Stanford a "pot pioneer" in this interview from June 2009. CNN medical reporter Sanjay Gupta had written an article published in Time Magazine in January 2009 urging a NO vote on medical marijuana, so Stanford asked to debate Gupta and provided him with hundreds of medical studies on the efficacy of cannabis. Instead of debating Stanford, Gupta came on immediately after Stanford and, for the first time, Gupta admitted medical marijuana works, contradicting his Time magazine article published shortly before. Stanford hereby turns Gupta from being a very public opponent of medical marijuana and starts him down the road to become its biggest advocate. Gupta has gone on to produce a series of "Weed" documentaries on CNN about the effectiveness of marijuana for treating a wide range of illnesses.
