Bill Maher Talks CA Legalization with Jay Leno

Bill Maher talked about California's ballot initiative to legalize marijuana on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night.

Leno disagreed that legalization is a way to build revenue for California and cited worries of advertising drug sales to children (on a network where Anheuser-Busch, Miller and Heineken are some of the biggest advertisers) but he explained why he does agree with decriminalization.

When even the host of the Tonight Show, viewed by millions of people throughout America, doesn't think it makes sense to lock people up for using or growing marijuana and suggests decriminalizing it on his show, how much longer can this whole prohibition thing last?

At least Jay made it known to kids that if they smoke pot, they might end up a talentless loser that never has any success in life. Like Tonight Show guitarist Kevin Eubanks.
