We all know the tyrant Nancy Grace is a total nightmare to the marijuana community. She talks about the plant as if it’s straight up “the devil” and constantly just reminds me of the mother in the movie Waterboy. Most stoners are too familiar with her awful arguments against weed, sticking mostly to using just straight fear tactics with no hard evidence. As Erik Altieri, communications director for NORML put it, “It is unfortunate that Nancy Grace is content to continue her groundless fear-mongering campaign against the responsible regulation of marijuana. With her outrageous claims that marijuana legalization in Colorado would set off a statewide crime wave proven false by the fact crime was down across the board in the state in 2014, it seems she is willing to keep tilting at windmills for the sake of ratings rather than simply admit she was wrong. One has to wonder, when it comes to Nancy Grace and her outlandish remarks, is reefer madness to blame?”
Last Tuesday, Nancy Grace actually hosted a show in which she guest starred the famous rapper 2 Chainz. The rapper has been arrested for marijuana possession before and thought it would be a good idea to appear on Grace’s show in order to try to set her straight on marijuana law reform. While the lyrics of 2 Chainz might not strike one as debate worthy, he shuts Nancy Grace down with some extremely rational arguments. “Umm, I’m not sure if you know but everybody has the ability to get their hands on pot right now, whether it’s legal or not,” he explained to Grace in the segment. “I just feel like if you legalize this particular drug, it could cut out certain things in the criminal justice system as far as the overcrowding of prisons…”
2 Chainz went on to explain how the regulated marijuana market would help to even out the financial trouble that the country is in, along with the war on drugs and thus, confusing Nancy Grace beyond belief. She really got miffed when he mentioned that he did indeed used to sell weed. But of course, Grace just talks in circles until her segment is over and then blindly declares victory even though she’s been out-argued by someone who’s clearly more educated than her. Grace promoted the clip on Twitter under the hashtag “#pot2blame”… Most of us know that pot is definitely not the one to blame here.
