SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Talk show host Montel Williams is partnering with Sacramento medical marijuana providers to open a high-end pot dispensary.

Williams on Monday led a tour of the facility, which The Sacramento Bee reports does not display marijuana anywhere until after patients discuss their medical needs with a counselor.

The longtime host of "The Montel Williams Show" has been an outspoken medical marijuana advocate since he began using the drug to relieve pain caused by multiple sclerosis.

California allows anyone with a doctor's recommendation to use medical marijuana, whatever their health condition. Critics claim dispensaries are often no more than drug trafficking fronts.

Williams said he wanted the Albatin Wellness Cooperative to be a place patients could feel comfortable bringing their parents. His parents were guests during Monday's unveiling.
