The Vine Summer Rewind is a celebration of crushing the stigma around cannabis + psychedelics. In honor of PMP’s first anniversary, we’re rewinding this June + highlighting our most popular episodes including Montel Williams, Tommy Chong, Zappy Zapolin, and Charley Wininger.

For 17 years we welcomed Montel Williams into our homes as he hosted one of America’s favorite daytime talk shows.  At the height of his TV career, in 1999, he experienced his first symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, and when pharmaceuticals proved ineffective for pain management, his doctor recommended he try cannabis. He graduated from the US Naval Academy and served in the Marine Corps. He has entertained millions, served his country and his story is not to be missed.
