Tommy Chong says Obama is the key to decriminalizing marijuana
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, June, 27th 2011 by THCFinder
While speaking with CNN about decriminalizing marijuana, Canadian actor Tommy Chong had a few choice words for Paul Chabot and a message for President Obama.
Chong said that President Obama had the power to remove marijuana from the same list where drugs like heroin and LSD reside and move it to a less restrictive list where it can be used for medical purposes.
"All President Obama has to do is sign an executive order rescheduling marijuana from Schedule 1, which says it has no medical use whatsoever, to a Schedule 2, which would allow it to be sold by prescription only. Then we'd be all done.”
Paul Chabot, a former White House senior advisor to the director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy and who is also the founder of the Coalition for a Drug Free California, had issues with what Chong was trying to accomplish saying;
“We have woken up to the medical fraud marijuana problem that's skirted all around our nation. Times are changing. It will be back to community and family values."
Chong went on to speak about how Montel Williams keeping his MS under control by using marijuana and that while Melissa Ethridge suffered through her fight with cancer that the use of marijuana helped her through that pain.
The argument ended up with Chong telling Chabot to “shut up” saying;
“It has medical use. That lie you just said where it had no medical use whatsoever, it's a lie.”
In 2004, before President Obama was in office, he said that the war of drugs was “an utter failure” and that while he did not believe that marijuana should be legalized he did think that it should be decriminalized.

In an interview with Playboy magazine, Justin Timberlake took a walk down memory lane talking about his N'Sync and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse days, and discussed why he still smokes marijuana.
When asked directly if he still smokes marijuana, Timberlake replied, "Absolutely." He continued by saying that it helps him to stop thinking and that "some people are just better high."
The 30-year-old even divulged that when he appeared on the first episode of MTV's "Punk'd" he was high.
Going back to his N'Sync days, Timberlake said you couldn't help but be overwhelmed with all of the girl attention; however, he saw the least of it since he was the youngest in the group.
"I hate to disappoint you, but I was the youngest one in the group, so the other guys were getting more of that action, and they were protective of me," Timberlake explained.
Montel Williams Opens Marijuana Dispensary In Sacramento

On Monday, Williams appeared in Sacramento to announce a partnership with a new enterprise, a medical marijuana dispensary.
In a news conference at the newly renovated offices of the former Capital Wellness Center, Williams spoke about his own battle with multiple sclerosis and why he turned to marijuana to alleviate near-constant neurological pain.
"Prescription drugs nearly shut down my kidneys. Then a doctor suggested I try medical marijuana," said Williams, who credits pot for improving his health and well-being.
Williams – a recent guest host of "Good Day Sacramento" on Channel 31 (KMAX) – led a tour of the new Albatin Wellness Cooperative at 29th and U streets in the Newton Booth neighborhood of midtown. He was accompanied by a Harvard-trained physician, Dr. Alan Shackelford, who specializes in medical marijuana.
"We've been caught up in culture surrounding medical marijuana that's 20 years old," Williams said. "While adhering to every single state law, we want to provide safe access for patients and really medicalize this. Patients should be put first."
He decided to partner with the marijuana cooperative's director, Aundre Speciale, a friend he met two years ago and with whom he shares a philosophy of making medical marijuana available along with patient counseling and a standardized product.
The host of "The Montel Williams Show," which aired from 1991 to 2008, said he would be "involved at every level of the cooperative, from the philosophical direction down to the blueprints."
Williams said he wants to change the stigma surrounding doctor-prescribed pot use.
"It's absurd. I can go get morphine pumped into my system and nobody's got a problem," he said. "But all of a sudden they're really worried if I smoked a joint."
