Tonight at 9: "Pot Moms" tell all

As part of a special "Piers Morgan Live" entitled "Gone to Pot: America's Marijuana Obsession," tonight Piers Morgan welcomes Cheryl Shuman, January Thomas, Amie Machado and Glenda Gurrlen, collectively called the "Pot Moms," to talk about their experience with cannabis and why they choose the drug over many others.

“Marijuana is the slang name and cannabis is actually the true scientific name... It deserves some respect,” declares Shumam, known as the "Martha Stewart of Marijuana." “The bottom line is cannabis is here to stay, the toothpaste is out of the tube,” says Shuman, the creator of the Beverly Hills Cannabis Club.

Shuman and Machado both turned to marijuana for health concerns, but their introduction to the drug inspired them to build successful businesses within the industry. "I make cookies, I make cakes - anything and everything you can do," explains Machado, owner of Auntie's Edibles.

In response to critics who say that marijuana is the first step off a slippery slope, Machado says “you need to educate your children." Machado, who has three children, now includes her own son in her business.

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with the "pot moms," and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Piers - just watched your comments and conclusions after interviewing the moms from California in favor of pot usage. Bro, your conclusions are incredibly shallow and naïve. You barely asked them anything. They barely answered anything... and when you asked one of them (Janery Thomas?) what her dosage was all she could say was 'HALF A COOKIE!' And you took it hook, line and sinker. Your level of critical thinking concerning what they said was woefully pathetic. C'mon Piers. Don't be so ridiculous (literally meaning 'able to be ridiculed').

    Great show tonight Piers. Finally the facts are beginning to be revealed about cannabis and the decades-old-myths are being debunked on a national level. I'm a successful civil engineering student, and I do smoke cannabis. It has never had a negative impact on my personal life, and it has never had a gateway effect for me. I applaud the show tonight.

    people against legalizing pot must not know their history! in the 30's and 40's when alcohol was illegal people were saying the same thing, they are now saying about pot. No ONE has EVER overdosed on pot! in the history of the world! America can make a lot of money and the crime rate WILL go down! It's amazing when doctors even say pot is not a gate way drug there is no reason why it's not legalized. we have age limits on alcohol and tobacco which are more harmful. put an age limit on pot use the DEA for something useful by monitoring pot sales and make a lot of money in the USA and we will have money that we do not have to borrow from other countries.

    Great show tonight, Piers!

    Happy to see so much about pot being discussed and letting the facts get out there.

    I wish you mentioned how much second hand smoke kills because I cannot stand the smell of tobacco

    I have parkkinsons, sometimes at night I smoke. I feel so much better, I don't have to take my pills. My doctor says it rellaxes me. It's a relaxing buzz, it relaxes your body,

      Gabrielle, we know this because no one has recorded a single incident in the history of mankind of anyone ever overdosing on pot.

    Alot of people say Pot is a gateway drug- I say that not being able to smoke pot compels people to try other drugs-- because Pot is detectable in the blood for at least a month and other more harmful drugs are gone in a day or two - so people are afraid they are going to loose their jobs or children etc if they are ever drug tested , so rather than smoke pot they use other more harmful drugs- which really is harmful and very adictive and self destructive to them and society

    The interview about cannabis was interesting. For an additional take on the topic, animals respond favorably to treatment of cancer symptoms and other ailments with proper doses of marajuana. The Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association has a large article, written by a veterinarian in its June 15, 2013 issue on this topic.

Keep them coming 🙂

    As a husband of pharmacist, I can't help but notice that the language used by the 'moms' is drug seeking language we hear at the pharmacy all the time. I know moms who use marijuana and they fall asleep and it is VERY difficult to wake them until they are ready, ah that refreshing sleep while they children are left on their own..hmmm

    There language reminds me of an alcohol advertisement to 'know when to say when', when you are under the influence you are no judge of your behavior.

    I doubt your children will thank you for being drugged when you are supposed to be interacting with them, smiling sheepishly is not interacting.

      Don't the prescriptions your wife fills leave a person "drugged"? A little honesty would be refreshing here, a large number of prescription drugs used to treat symptoms (notice I didn't say "cure" the symptoms, that would lose customers) have worse side-effects than marijuana. Lose the hypocritical nonsensical arguments and focus on facts to help your stance. Like the fact that a bigger problem than marijuana, is a large number of marijuana users are fairly useless. Working at a head shop is not a career, bathing is not unnecessary, and responsible marijuana users would appreciate it if these types of "pot-heads" would stay out of the media.

      Weird how the facts seem to cloud the situation, eh?

    This is a start, but next time Piers interview people like Rick Simpson, Dr. Janet Sweeney at phoenixtearsfoundation.ca or Prof. Robert Melamede behind Cannabis Science and you will get a story larger than life...
