Torn Up Lungs and Motorcycle Mauraders!
Marijuana Policy Project executive director and Friend of Reason (FoR) Rob Kampia submits to a grilling from Fox News host Glenn Beck, who manages a handful of eye rolls, a dozen stupid munchies jokes, and informs his viewers that smoking pot will rip your lungs apart. Memo to Beck: If you are going to be obnoxious to—and dismissive of—a guest, make sure you know what the hell you are talking about. Game, set, match to Kampia:
Also, the atheist-conservative blogger Allahpundit notes that Beck is the Naomi Wolf of the right, recently hosting a show that "war games" the destruction of American democracy. Be sure to watch for the hysterical Gerald Celente, who argues that by 2014 the streets of America will be controlled by "motorcycle marauders." So Beck scoffs at Kampia and his suggestion that the war on drugs has been a colossal failure, but doesn't challenge Celente's insane rant that America will soon look like a Bo Gritz remake of Quadrophenia?
