Dr. Sanjay Gupta recently explained the best ways to consume medical marijuana in an interview with Business Insider.

Vaporizing is more effective than smoking or eating pot, Gupta told Business Insider. The remarks from CNN's chief medical correspondent sharply contrasted the CNN correspondent's previous opposition to pot. Earlier this month, Gupta said he had changed his mind on pot, and apologized for his previous reporting, which he said "misled" the American public.

The announcement caused quite a stir, and even prompted one Colorado pot dispensary to introduce a special new brand of weed called "Sanjay Gupta Kush." CNN's lawyers, however, have requested that the dispensary stop using Gupta's name.
