For more than a decade, Emmy Award-winning television personality Montel Williams has publicly battled Multiple Sclerosis. Williams was diagnosed with MS, a potentially debilitating autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, in 1999 and has since campaigned to increase awareness of the disease.
Williams has openly touted the use of medical marijuana and recently announced his involvement in a medical marijuana consulting company. He is a proponent of fully legalizing the use of marjijuana. At the end of the month, Williams will undergo experimental surgery to correct chronic cerebrospinal venus insufficiency (CCVI), a condition associated with MS.
Williams joins American Morning to discus MS, the use of medical marijuana and his upcoming experimental surgery.

Isn't Sclafani using stents now?

Honestly that's my opion also - Montel Williams doesn't do anything unless there's an upside for Montel Williams - at least that how it comes across to me.
The outcome and publicity of this single particular procedure could be as damaging as it could be positive.
I think there is a tendency to look to him because so many of us--I should speak for myself--feel rather unempowered in this illness. When Montel talks, people listen. ... But he is still a person sufffering with a very painful form of MS, where he describes it is like a screwdriver going through his legs.

Calm down... Calm down. I was on a plane and just read your posts about the article on CCSVI. Our communication paths were crossed and I was miss quoted. I have researched CCSVI extensively, spent many hours speaking to my doctor and I am well informed about the procedure. I have to say though, I am very happy that so many of you read the article and are on top of it as well!
