Tonight at 9: Predators, Pot, Politics, and Pythons

Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes a host of returning guests, each dedicated to advancing a particular story that falls under their realm of expertise.

  • Lydia Esparra and the demolition of Ariel Castro's house

As Ariel Castro awaits his permanent prison, the home where he held three women captive is being reduced to rubble, perhaps a metaphor for the crushing destruction he inflicted on Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry, and Michelle Knight.

Having covered the case in Cleveland for years, and growing close during that time with the DeJesus family, WOIO news reporter Lydia Esparra will rejoin Piers Morgan with her detailed insight and perspective.

  • "Gone To Pot": Dr. Sanjay Gupta

In advance of his upcoming CNN special entitled "Weed," this evening Dr. Sanjay Gupta joins the program as part of a discussion on medical marijuana and the legalization of cannabis.

Joining Gupta and Morgan, Dr. Howard Samuels will share his pot perspective, which comes on the backdrop of his years as an addict, and his time spent creating and founding "The Hills Treatment Center" in Los Angeles, Calif.

  • NYC Mayoral candidate Christine Quinn to be joined by supporter Sandra Fluke
  • With the New York City mayoral election less than three months away, tonight Christine Quinn returns to "Piers Morgan Live," and she does so holding top position in the latest poll. On the heels of race turbulence resulting from Anthony Weiner's latest gaffee, the City Council Speaker will be joined by famed women's right activist Sandra Fluke, who has recently announced her endorsement of Quinn.

  • Rogue Reptile: Jeff Corwin on snake safety
  • And, less than a week since his most-recent "Piers Morgan Live" appearance, on Wednesday animal expert Jeff Corwin will be back on the primetime show, only this time under significantly sadder circumstances.

    The host of Animal Planet's "The Jeff Corwin Experience" and "Corwin's Quest," this evening's visit comes on the heels of the recent death of Noah and Connor Barthe, two young Canadian brothers who are believed to have been killed by a 100-pound African rock python.

    For all of these stories, plus up to date, breaking news events, watch "Piers Morgan Live" at 9 on CNN.

      I am the aunt of Meghan Wilson, who was scheduled to appear in your segment with Dr. Sanjay Gupta tonight. When we found out that Meghan and Brian were invited to appear on the show, we were elated. This appearance, this national exposure, would be one positive thing to come out of Governor Christie’s extension in making a decision on the bill they have so tirelessly worked to pass. To say that an innumerable amount of people were disappointed that they were cut from the show is an understatement.

      Out of curiosity, I researched the segments that would air. I was happy to see that Dr. Gupta’s segment was not cut, as I believe that his contribution on the subject will give further credibility to these families’ cause. I was admittedly angered, however, when I saw that another segment, featuring Christine Quinn and Sandra Fluke discussing the NYC mayoral election, would go on.

      I understand that these women are “important people.” I don’t imagine that you’d inconvenience them by disrupting their schedule. But my niece and her beautiful daughter are important, not only to their family and many friends, but to the countless people around the country who have looked to them to champion this cause.

      The aforementioned women will be discussing an event that is “less than three months away.” Meghan and Brian hoped to be heard before Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s show aired and before Aug. 19th, when Governor Christie will seal their fate. They have, at most, seven days.

      I’m sure you can imagine the frustration, disappointment, and setbacks the Wilsons have had to endure during this process. But this opportunity was different in that it provided them with much needed hope. And I’m simply heartbroken for them.

      It’s important to note that I am writing this without the Wilson’s knowledge or consent. I know that they will continue to advocate for their daughter with the same dignity and integrity they have always demonstrated, despite this unconscionable eleventh hour decision.

      The guest talking about pythons said 'the province of Canada'. Please let's get it right. Canada is a country with ten provinces, and the snake was located in New Brunswick.

      Can only assume someone sponsored the canabis story, how ignorant to compare a backyard product to products from pharmacy or food regulated industries. To make a medical recommendation based on an individual dragging a joint is the most ignorant thing I shave ever seen, I will not watch this show again. Clearly the real effect of marihuana is either ignorant to the show or you guys have been bought, shame.

      Funny how after 70 years of hate towards marijuana from the upper crust politicians in America, now they smell money when money has dried up everywhere else. Do the research and see how they are looking to make as high as $579 per ounce. These politicians are nothing more than dope pushers. They can't stand not having money to burn (spend). What needs to be done from the People is demand that if Marijuana is legal in America, every penny that goes to the Federal Government is used to pay off the NATIONAL DEBT that they borrowed. That every dollar left over after all expenses, every dollar goes to paying off all debts owed.

      In this great scheme of things you secure an A just for hard work. Where you lost us ended up being on all the specifics. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more true at this point. Having said that, permit me reveal to you just what exactly did deliver the results. Your text can be incredibly powerful which is possibly the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can certainly see the jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of exactly how you seem to unite the points which in turn produce your conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your position however wish in the foreseeable future you link the dots much better.
