Nancy Grace Warns: Hopped-Up Reefer Maniacs Are Strangling People, Killing Whole Families

Reefer Madness, 2014 edition.

Nancy Grace, the ethically challenged prosecutor turned journalistically challenged TV host, wants to warn you about the effects of smoking marijuana:

Airing tonight on HLN.

"The reason I'm against legalization is that I've seen too many felonies -- felonies -- and I don't mean pot sales or growing pot," [Nancy Grace] continued. "I mean people on pot that shoot each other, that stab each other, that strangle each other, that kill whole families -- wipe out a whole family."

"You sound like you're from the 1930s," [Mason] Tvert [of the Marijuana Policy Project] responded.

"No, no," Grace replied. "The first time -- there was this gorgeous lady standing in the middle of the courtroom crying, and I didn't understand what was going on. They said she was a stockbroker. She had got addicted to pot, ended up losing her job, wrecked her car, couldn't make her house payments on her house, so her husband got custody of the children, and now she has no house, no car, no family, nothing."

To see the entire exchange -- including the exaggerated air quotes that Grace makes while saying "Marijuana Policy Project" -- watch below:
