Montel Williams is one of the most recognizable faces in America. That is largely due to the fact that Montel Williams was an Emmy winning talk show host for 17 years. The Montel Williams Show (also known as Montel) aired from 1991 to 2008, and included well over 4,000 episodes. The show won many awards and catapulted Montel into celebrity status.
Unlike many celebrities, Montel Williams used his fame and recognition to become a passionate advocate for many things, including cannabis reform. Montel Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, and started using medical cannabis after his doctor recommended it. Mr. Williams turned his unfortunate diagnosis into an opportunity to bring attention to his condition, to those that are also suffer from it, and how medical cannabis can help.
Montel is an inspirational speaker, author, entrepreneur, and advocate for patients worldwide. Montel also advocates for cannabis access for military veterans, with Montel himself having served in the United States Marine Corps for 22 years.
