Dr. Drew on Marijuana: “Legalize it and Whatever”

Here’s “Celebrity Addiction Specialist” Dr. Drew going out of his way to remind critics that he’s actually cool with legalizing marijuana (starts at 4:50):


That’s nice to hear, I suppose, since we haven’t always had the nicest things to say about him around here. I seem to recall referring to him as a “dangerous quack,” I think it was. But I was just a little pissed off at the time about his endorsement of planting drugs on drug users to get them locked up and thrown in drug treatment. It was a tough time in our relationship and I’m willing to leave the past behind and look forward to a bright future in which he reluctantly supports legalization and hopefully stops saying stupid or crazy things about Lindsey Lohan.

End Federal Marijuana Prohibition - A How-to...

The end of federal prohibition is right around the corner. We just need your voice and every other person that cares about these civil liberties to speak up. NOW is the time. Tell the federal government to leave the decisions up to the states. They will listen or be replaced.

Dr. Drew is cynical scum but he's not stupid. I still can't believe he got away with telling thousands of his listeners that LSD is a "neurotoxin". He should have his license revoked for that. What an outrage for a licensed physician to tell people a bald face lie of such magnitude! This is no doubt in keeping with his advocacy of dishonest conduct towards hapless teens etc. Lying to the pubic for its own good. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
