  • Montel,

    Amen to you! I've never cried at work, but I cried watching your press conference this morning. I, too, have a problem with pharmecutical pain killers - I'm allergic. I have Interstitial Cystitis, an incurable bladder and kidney disorder which can ONLY be dealt with through pain management. I can either "drool in the corner" on the heavier pain meds which don't make me sick, or I can smoke. I have a 10-year-old daughter and I'm a divorced mother. It's my daughter and me. I would rather be stoned and almost pain-free than incapacitated just because it's legal. Bravo to you. God Bless You, Montel.
