Boom in California Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Fresno, Calif. For someone to get pot from a medical marijuana dispensary all they need is to get a letter from a doctor. Allen Frankel is one of those doctors and said he sees no problem with what he does. "I think it's the greatest medication I've ever worked with. I really do," he said, "I'm not trying to get patients stoned. I'm trying to get patients to feel normal."

Dr. Frankel admits that about half of those buying medical marijuana are doing so just to get stoned. He says those users harm the industry and makes it difficult for marijuana to be viewed as a legitimate medication.
