2.) CBS 5 Reporter Claims Chronic Pain and Gets a Medical-Pot Card, Then Implies Wrongdoing
The award for worst alleged "investigation" of the year goes to CBS 5's Morgan Loew. Loew started at a chiropractor's office, complaining about pain he's been having for months. He then complained about this pain to a doctor -- this "distracting" pain that's lasted for months. He couldn't tell the doctor whether the pain made it difficult for him to concentrate on things but admitted that it limits his ability to run. For this, Loew sought a medical-marijuana card. Once he got one, he declared the medical-pot program a sham, and claimed "young, healthy" people were being described medical marijuana, despite Loew being neither young nor healthy, based on what he told medical professionals, and the state department of health.
