Montel Williams wants to give Californians the marijuana dispensary they deserve, leading him to take a job as a consultant to the Albatin Wellness Cooperative.
The former talk show host and weed advocate plans to create a high-end facility for the sale of medical marijuana in Sacramento.
Williams says he’ll be “involved at every level” of the cooperative.
He toured the premises with reporters, emphasizing his mission is to provide a “comfortable” and educational place that’s less seedy and more like a pharmacy.
“We’ve been caught up in a culture surrounding medical marijuana that’s 20 years old,” Williams said during a press conference. “While adhering to every single state law, we want to provide safe access for patients and really medicalize this.”
Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the 1990s.
