Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl isn't just a supporter of medical marijuana, he's also a medical marijuana user.

Rosendahl is the most high profile city politician to acknowledge having a prescription for pot. His office told Eyewitness News that he uses the drug to treat painful neuropathy in his feet.

Rosendahl has been a supporter of legalizing medical marijuana nationwide. In his most recent campaign, he accepted $8,900 in contributions from medical marijuana proponents.
