Ron Paul vs. Stephen Baldwin on Marijuana Legalization
Wow this is funny.
Why the hell is Stephen Baldwin debating Ron Paul? Probably because support for marijuana prohibition has dwindled so badly, Pauly Shore's co-star was the only one willing to debate a former Presidential Candidate. I'm not convinced he even knew who Ron Paul was.
I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. I was in stitches folks. "Marijuana leads to worse things. That's just a fact. I don't care what anybody says." Balding confidently states, citing alcohol abuse and abuse of harder drugs as inevitable consequences of smoking marijuana.
Stephen Baldwin doesn't really get a word in edgewise throughout the entire interview. And for each dumb reason he throws out (check out his response to medical marijuana around 4:25), the congressman has a field day quickly refuting and following up with a short rant on drug prohibition.
I don't know why I'm writing about Stephen Baldwin. I wish I wasn't. That guy is an ass. Now Ron Paul; that's one sensible man.
