Jimmy Kimmel Addresses Marijuana Legalization at White House Correspondents' Dinner
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, April, 30th 2012 by THCFinder
Jimmy Kimmel sparked the most appropriate dinner table conversation while at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night: the legalization of marijuana. “What is with the marijuana crackdown? Seriously, what is the concern? We will deplete the nation's Funyun supply?” Kimmel joked. “Pot smokers vote too. Sometimes a week after the election, but they vote.”
Kimmel continued to steal the show, asking everyone in the room to raise their hand if they had never smoked weed before. When only a few hands when up, Kimmel spoke directly to President Barack Obama and said, “Marijuana is something that real people care about.”
While there’s been a recent nationwide crackdown on medical marijuana producers, President Obama says he would entertain a debate about drug legalization. Following Kimmel’s speech, a deputy for Attorney General Eric Holder said that there’s no designated war on medical marijuana, but individual clinics were breaking state and federal laws.
Between Kimmel’s speech, Obama’s Jeezy shout out, and the numerous Instagram pics, it appears as though the "nerd prom" was pretty poppin’.
Wiz Khalifa arrested for marijuana possession in Nashville Holiday Inn

If you've got it, flaunt it — but maybe not in front of cops.
Wiz Khalifa was hit with a citation for misdemeanor possession by Nashville police after the rapper (real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz) was caught lighting up in his Holiday Inn room Saturday.
According to The Tennessean, Khalifa, 24, and his pal Lonnie Howard, 27, were having a fun game of puff-puff-pass when fellow residents at the hotel complained about a strong marijuana odor coming from their room.
The paper reports that the front desk had already gone up to room 725 to tell the pair to cool it, but then called the police shortly afterward.
When the officers arrived, Khalifa reportedly flicked his blunt out the window and then proceeded to deny that he or Howard had any more marijuana on them.
The joint was later recovered outside the hotel room, and "inside the rolling paper was a green leafy substance consistent with marijuana," the police report says, according to TMZ.
The pair eventually fessed up to possessing more marijuana — Khalifa said he had 3.7 grams, to be exact — and both were slammed with the citation.
They will have to show up at Davidson County Courthouse by May 14 for booking on the charges, The Tennessean reports.
Khalifa was in town to perform as the headliner for Vanderbilt University's Rites of Spring concert, and left town Sunday.
