Dalai Lama endorses medical marijuana

  • Although, Dalai Lama is against the recreational use of marijuana, he supports the drug when its legal and valuable. 

    According to the 78-year old spiritual leader, smoking pot for medical reasons is justified but its not good for someone to use the drug just to have a "crazy mind."

    Dalai Lama was speaking at an event hosted by the former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox. He didn't get an official welcome from the government of Mexico since the country is looking to build friendlier relations with China, which considers the leader to be dangerous.

    China is known to punish countries that officially greet Dalai Lama.
