No, this isn’t a joke.
Tuesday’s episode of Nancy Grace was actually titled “#Pot2Blame.” It actually featured rapper 2 Chainz. And 2 Chainz actually debated with Nancy Grace about whether legalizing marijuana is bad for kids.
“You say that there are reasonable people that can smoke pot, use pot and they won’t involve their children — nobody else is going to get hurt,” Grace said, showing videos of parents forcing their kids to smoke marijuana. “But what about these people?”
2 Chainz responded, “It’s the same thing we talked about earlier, darling. With the legalization of alcohol, you will find some footage like this, but everybody is not doing this. Some people actually love their child. Some people know that it’s obviously wrong. So, this is nothing to really argue about. These people are obviously imbeciles. You can’t use this case to define an entire community.”
Grace mentioned during the segment that 2 Chainz graduated from college with a 4.0 grade-point average. She also says she doesn’t condemn medical pot users — just recreational. But 2 Chainz has an argument for that, too — he says it’s a drain on the criminal justice system, and his own brush with the law shows it.
“For me, I’m a taxpayer,” he said. “My bus get pulled over, and they say they smell weed, like they do all the time. They find a grinder on my bus that has .01 of residue inside of it. OK? They lock me up, they strip me, then they find out I’m a rapper, and they wanna know how fine is Nicki Minaj. They wanna take pictures, and they wanna let me go. They obviously charge me with .01, I go to court, I go to trial, and then they say, ‘Do you pack your own bags? Is this your grinder?’ I tell them no. Well, they find out my security does it, they drop my case, and then they pick it up on my security, who obviously beats the case. If that’s not a waste of taxpayers’ time and money, I don’t know what it is.”
