Montel Williams talks MS, medical marijuana and experimental surgery

For more than a decade, Emmy Award-winning television personality Montel Williams has publicly battled Multiple Sclerosis. Williams was diagnosed with MS, a potentially debilitating autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, in 1999 and has since campaigned to increase awareness of the disease.

Williams has openly touted the use of medical marijuana and recently announced his involvement in a medical marijuana consulting company. He is a proponent of fully legalizing the use of marjijuana. At the end of the month, Williams will undergo experimental surgery to correct chronic cerebrospinal venus insufficiency (CCVI), a condition associated with MS.

Williams joins American Morning to discus MS, the use of medical marijuana and his upcoming experimental surgery.
