Former talk show host Montel Williams praised Israel’s stance on dispensing medical marijuana and is visiting the country to learn more about its medicinal cannabis policies.

Williams, an outspoken advocate of legally sanctioned marijuana use to control pain from his multiple sclerosis, will meet in Israel with legislators, scientists and physicians. Diagnosed in 1999 with MS, Williams told reporters that he takes marijuana on a daily basis to ease pain.

He formerly hosted the popular long-running talk show “The Montel Williams Show.”
