Weed Pusher: Drew Carey Wants Legalize Medical Marijuana
"Ahaaaaa.... Smell that smell. That's the smell of freedom," said Drew Carey, as he walked into Farmacy while filming a video on marijuana use and the war on drugs. Farmacy is a store in California where you can buy marijuana legally, as long as you have a doctor's note. (Hmmm. Good to know... uh, in case we ever get hurt or something.)
Anyway, Carey wants to legalize marijuana for medical use. Okay, Carey really wants to legalize weed for any use, but his first battle is to push the federal government to legalize medical marijuana.
“I think it’s clear by now that the federal government needs to reclassify marijuana," Carey said in the video. "People who need it should be able to get it – safely and easily."
Carey interviewed several people in the video who use marijuana for medical purposes, including Bill Lehey, who is a self-described gun-toting, right-wing Republican. "If you want my gun, you better take it off my dead body," Lehey said. He also said that he supports legalizing marijuana for medical purposes, because he needs it to treat backpain. He said that sometimes his back hurts so much that it wakes him up at night. "Two puffs" of weed, and he's sleeping like a baby.
This video is part of The Drew Carey Project, a Reason.tv video series in which Carey plans to address the political issues of the day, such as traffic congestion and immigration. You can watch it below.
