“A company called MarijuanaDoctors.com says it made history Monday when one of its commercials was aired by the biggest cable TV provider in the United States.
The TV spot began airing in New Jersey only and it will be played 800 times over the next two weeks. One of the company’s owners called it significant that the commercial is airing across the entire state and is being aired by Comcast, a telecommunications giant.
“We made history yesterday,” John Nicolazzo, chief operating officer and part owner, said in an interview Tuesday. “It’s a milestone.”
Medical marijuana has come a long way in the U.S. in recent years and is now legal in 20 states plus the District of Columbia. Colorado and Washington have gone even further and legalized marijuana for recreational use.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.
We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.
The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
