"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Lauren Graham and Matthew Perry talk acting role, Morgan Spurlock welcomes the Pot Mom

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Lauren Graham on acting: “Every job is a different animal”

On Friday evening, Matthew Perry took a turn as "Piers Morgan Live" guest host, inviting his friend Lauren Graham to offer details on her experiences as an actor. A Golden Globe nominee, Graham won notoriety for her portrayal of Lorelai Gillmore in the critically acclaimed "Gilmore Girls" television show. However, Graham says her latest role of as Sarah Braverman in NBC’s Parenthood presents some exciting new challenges:

“The world of "Gilmore Girls" was musical and precise, and the world of "Parenthood" is more about a family and they want it to sound messy and overlap,” said Graham. “I kind of like them both. I think when you're doing one, you crave the other."

Graham’s accolades continue beyond the television screen. In April, she authored "Someday, Someday, Maybe" which became a "The New York Times" bestseller:

“I like to be busy and this is something that I can do, you know, without waiting for someone to call action or cut,” said Graham. “[The book] started as a project completely for myself. I never intended to show it.”

  • Spurlock discusses the legalization of marijuana with “Pot Mom”
    Cheryl Shuman and recovering addict Howard Samuels

CNN’s “Inside Man” Morgan Spurlock rounded out “Guest Host Week” on Saturday night with a bang. From immigration reform to NSA leaker Edward Snowden, he and his guests covered a broad spectrum of current issues. In his signature style of investigating both sides of the debate, Spurlock invited founder of the Beverly Hills Cannabis Club and self-proclaimed “pot mom” Cheryl Shuman to discuss marijuana legalization with CEO and Founder of Hills Treatment Center, Howard Samuels.

On one side, Samuels, who is a recovering addict, argued that beyond its addictive qualities, smoking marijuana can be the source of serious medical conditions:

“If you're inhaling horrible chemicals and issues like that, then that's also where the throat cancer comes from and other physical ailments.”

Shuman provided an alternative perspective, insightfully defending the safety of marijuana as a medical substance:

“Cannabis is far safer than alcohol, tobacco or pharmaceuticals. It was legal in our pharmacies until 1937. And not only that, alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceuticals, people are dying at the rate - women specifically, are dying at a rate of one woman every nine minutes from overdoses from alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceuticals. Do you know how many overdoses there have been from marijuana? Zero. Zero in the history of this plant. It's a plant that can heal a multitude of illnesses. It is a superior mood stabilizer. And it works. And the revenue and the tax regulation of this plant can heal our economy, period.”

But the two seemed to reach an agreement (loosely speaking) on the medical benefit of marijuana as a legitimate pain reliever. From there, the conversation begs an answer to the question of whether the medical benefits outweigh the risk of exposing our youth to what has for years been deemed an illegal and dangerous drug.

“The only benefit is with people with serious, you know, cancer issues and some pain issues. That I agree with,” Samuels admitted. “But the whole medical California issue here is a farce. It's a sham. You know, most of the people are addicts that get cards. I mean I treat people that walk in there, they can get a card like that, like you did, Morgan. I mean it is totally unregulated. And it's a joke. And that's part of the issue ... But what is really irresponsible here is that there doesn't seem to be many advocates of trying to protect our young people from this very dangerous emotional drug. And I'm sorry, but I think that the two of you are totally being very irresponsible here to our nation's youth.”
