Smoking the Opposition

Earlier this evening on his FoxNews show, Geraldo Rivera came out of a story about a marijuana cafe soon to open in Portland to in-studio guests, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, who were there to promote their upcoming "Make it Legal" tour.

After Geraldo introduced his guests and exchanged familiarities, Tommy Chong made a simple argument in favor of rescheduling marijuana from Class 1 to Class 2, which would make it available nationwide on a prescription basis.

Afterwards, Mr. Rivera turned to panelist Ann Coulter, who stated almost word-for-word much the same thing she said in a previous Geraldo At-Large segment on 10/25, which I'm posting below and transcribing as follows;

It's one thing, people who have cancer and it helps with the nausea and it makes them hungry, but by the way, I've known people with cancer who needed pot and nobody had any trouble getting it. So, I think it's about right, the way it is now.

IOW: We shouldn't change the drug laws and guarantee that everyone who needs pot for medical purposes can safely buy it from a regulated source, perhaps even pay for it with their insurance because Ann Coulter's friends don't fit a police officer's profile.

After Ms. Coulter's cultural arrogance on 10/25, Geraldo does a Sesame Street piece about the Attorney General's announcement that the feds would bend to state law when it's properly applied and turned to former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who argued that it would have been all right for the feds to have deprioritized enforcement, but they shouldn't have told anyone.

ETA: Here's a link to Cheech & Chong's 11/16 appearance.
