According to the BBC, it's not an April Fool hmm

Whoopi Goldberg is lending her name and financial backing to a new line of medical marijuana products designed specifically for women.

Goldberg, who has been public about her own marijuana use, is one of a handful of Hollywood celebrities jumping into the marijuana marketplace. Bob Marley’s family has partnered with a cannabis company to produce Marley Natural products, and Snoop Dogg backs Leafs by Snoop. Goldberg said her “Whoopi & Maya” company received financial backing from three friends and family members, and she will serve as chairwoman.

That can't be true can it? I've never heard of anyone putting cannabis in the bath. Maybe smoking a joint while bathing but getting it wet would definitely spoil the effect.

As I said, it's been "cleared" by the BBC ?

If it's true then fair play to her.
I am shocked that some parts of the US are actually ahead of us in the legalization route, it seems weird that we consider ourselves so liberal, but have no liberal ideas when it comes to marijuana.

If you look at the financial stats in the states that have allowed use, it's already a billion dollar market, so she's showing good business sense!

Cannabis and cannabis based medicines will be a big thing in the not so distant future. Lots of clinical trials going on in various indications. Few drugs already licensed around the world.
