CNBC Attacks Schwarzenegger For Endorsing Marijuana Legalization Debate

Submitted by smorgan on

Watch CNBC's Larry Kudlow go ballistic over Gov. Schwarzenegger's recent statement in favor of debating marijuana legalization:

Here's what Schwarzenegger actually said:
"Well, I think it's not time for that, but I think it's time for a debate. I think all of those ideas of creating extra revenues [are worth considering] … I think we ought to study very carefully what other countries are doing that have legalised marijuana and other drugs. What effect did it have on those countries?"
And here's what Kudlow heard:
"I mean he basically wants to get everybody stoned and then raise taxes"
Did you even read the damn quote, Larry? It's just incredible to watch the childish hissy fits that erupt over something as sensible as suggesting we talk about marijuana laws. Anyone who doesn't want to discuss marijuana policy doesn’t have to, but if you don't think it's important, please do the rest of us a favor and just be quiet.
