When we think of series from the 90s, we most likely think of cases that, to put it mildly, have not aged very well. The spirit of the times of that time was characterized by banal themes, silly and often misogynistic humor and underdeveloped or non-existent female or racist characters.
But there is a series that is different: Nanny, the sitcom about a cosmetics saleswoman from Queens, NY, who ends up as a nanny for a wealthy family. This year, the legendary series turns 29 years old. And while it’s not perfect or progressive, it stands in contrast to the rest of the output of its decade, managing to stay fresh, with intelligent and sensitive humor… and iconic costumes that never go out of style.
And we owe it all to ourselves Fran Drescher, an actress, writer and activist who created and starred in the series ’93. After success catapulted him to fame Nanny, Drescher suffered from uterine cancer, which is why she turned to activism. That’s how he founded his non-profit organization Crab Schmancerwith the aim of spreading education about this disease and health in general.

What many people don’t know is that over the years, Fran Drescher had the marijuana plant as an unconditional ally. Surprisingly, his love for cannabis is not so public. Not even after she played the step-aunt in an episode of Broad City.
However, the star has been very vocal about her relationship with the plant lately. Like all relationships, his changed over time.
In an interview with Closer Weeklythe actress revealed I smoked a lot of weed when I was young…but maybe not for the reasons listed: “I smoked to numb my feelings. It helped me get through certain relationships that were a little difficult for me.”
In fact, her therapist had to forbid her from going to her sessions high. So he managed to change the way he used the plant: “I knew how to wake up and smoke! But now I understand its healing properties.”he admitted.
These healing properties came to us after his cancer diagnosis (which, by the way, he got with great difficulty, after 8 doctors and two years of wrong diagnosis).
“A few years after the operation I noticed that I had problems with inflammationand that’s when I became interested again in the wonders of cannabis,” shared s Closer Weekly in that time. “It reduces inflammation, reduces stress, makes you sleep better and simply increases your functionality.. At least it worked for me. I am trying to share it with the public. And let it be organic!”
Indeed, the star often has panels on cannabis at the conferences he hosts crab Schmancer, and talks about the benefits of the plant at conventions. In addition, it places great emphasis on the spread of natural medicine and the use of 100% organic products.

Marijuana also improved his life in another, more indirect way. In an interview with Forbessaid Drescher his father, who was struggling with symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, decided to try cannabis. “She went from that blank look that Parkinson’s patients have, that kind of boring life, to a positive reaction within seconds of using cannabis. His whole face came alive, his voice became strong, his eyes widened and my father was him again“, said the actress.
Drescher is also very skeptical of the traditional media and institutional treatment of marijuana. A self-confessed anti-capitalist, the writer links the lack of knowledge about cannabis to corporate greed. “We can challenge what we’re being told … and really start to question whether it’s true or whether it’s motivated by greed.”
