Another positive outcome of the recession? Maybe.

Of course Glenn “Fuck up a wet dream” Beck acts like a junior high kid talking about vaginas in the back of the classroom;

Glenn Beck had on Rob Kampia of the Marijuana Policy Project to discuss the proposal to decriminalize pot possession in California and to use the revenues to pay down the state’s budget deficit.

Now, Beck has already wished aloud that we could kick California out of the Union, so no doubt this just adds to his angst.

But if you’ll notice: One person in this conversation was calm, reasonable, had an abundance of facts at hand, and actually made pretty good sense. The other person was incoherent, meandering, silly, made a lot of irrelevant observations from outer space, and relied on dumb stereotypes and non-facts.

And Glenn Beck was not the former. On top of that, his nonstop sneering at Kampia made him look like a real sphincter.

In fact, this entire clip generally makes a convincing argument in favor of the marijuana advocates. If the best the opposition can come up with is this kind of gaping stupidity …

13 Thoughts on “The Prohibition of Mary Jane may end

    I wonder what kinds of lists you would get put on for deducting the sales tax for multa purchases.

  2. FFA’s National Board?

    As I recall, FDR got prohibition overturned fairly soon in his first term. It certainly couldn’t hurt the economy – or help drug cartels.

  4. It would be a boom for the economy.

    If this happens, I’m buying huge amounts of stock in Frito-Lay and Hostess.

    Are they the ones who make funyuns?

    Hell, if it was legal I’d use my backyard garden to grow some as a cash crop.
    At some point, people quit accepting all the tomatoes/squash/potatoes/onions/carrots I grow. I doubt this would be the case with weed.

  7. Gives a whole new meaning to ‘Farmer’s Market’

  8. Am I the only one who has noticed that Glenn Beck looks like the stoned one in that screen capture?

    Then again – isn’t he pretty much drunk all the time anyway? I love how people who think their vices as morally superior to the vices of others tend to get preachy when discussing them.

    What a tool.

  9. He says in the video that he is a recovering Alcoholic.

    Recovering from last night maybe.

    I just have to find the humor in someone who once was a coke-head chastising someone else who is trying to legalize pot of all things.

    That is sort of like De Knudson getting mad because Dave forgot to use a coupon at Hy-Vee.

  11. Don’t think that will happen, De loves spending money, especially when it is not hers.

    It is rather ironic, don’t you think?

    I still haven’t heard a single logical reason why weed should remain illegal. All I’ve heard is circular arguments – “it should be illegal because it’s illegal”. Nobody seems to wonder why.

  13. That’s what Pity Pat Powers thinks, of course you he grew up with a father who was a FBI agent so I’m sure the fire alarm was ringing around the dinner table everynight about all the ‘evil’ that exists in this country.
