Jimmy Kimmel Live took to the streets to ask people in California if they have a medical marijuana card and why, prompting answers about some nontraditional medical conditions.
“Twenty-four states have legalized marijuana, which means our country is almost now officially half-baked,” Kimmel said, introducing the video.
California legalized medical marijuana in 1996, but some have said oversight of the industry is lacking and argued doctors write medical marijuana prescriptions too freely.
“The condition is children, jobs, life,” one woman said, explaining why she has a card.
A man who was interviewed said he personally doesn’t have a card, but his son does—”to buy his dad medical marijuana,” he said.
