    I especially liked the idea of turning Idaho into a bong.

    I da ho? No way, you da ho!

    Not only very funny, but many important points were touched on. Kind of sad that a comedy news show is more informative than the actual news.

    Some points covered in the segment:

    • The latest Pew poll that shows a majority of Americans favor legalization.
    18 States now have mmj.

    • The graph that shows steady addiction rates in spite of exponential growth in drug war spending (looks like a mountain with a stream running out).

    • Rand Paul’s recent statement on legalization.

    • A great interview with Nick Gillespie, Reason.com editor-in-chief.

    • Private prisons’ dependence on prohibition.

    And I have no problem with medical prostitutes.

  • Servetus

    Big pot festivals are brewing for 4/20 in Colorado and Washington. People are attending from all over the country:

      It’s just got to bugger the prohibitionists to know that we’ve stolen a day off the calendar. I don’t suppose there’s much hope of seeing a million of us in Denver or Seattle? They couldn’t have picked a better year for this one since it’s a Saturday too.

      Frack every single one of the prohibitionists, it’s our day now, and we’re not giving it back. The prohibasites should go jump in Lake Asshole, I’m sure they’ll feel right at home.
