Dr. Drew: If Medical Marijuana Cured Cancer, 'I'd Be High Right Now'

Dr. Drew Pinsky cleared the air on a misconception about medical marijuana during a HuffPost Live interview Thursday.

When a viewer asked Dr. Drew to weigh in on the idea that marijuana can cure cancer, he said that simplified way of thinking just doesn't make sense because of the complicated biology of the hundreds of illnesses that fall under the cancer umbrella.

"I'm sorry, pot. I wish it could cure it. I wish. It would be great if we could just smoke a little pot and get over it. I'd be high right now," Dr. Drew said.
