"Today, as we celebrate Earth Day, we must keep in mind all the wonderful plants and weeds that Mother Nature has provided for us for medicinal purposes, some of which are perfectly legal to use at our disposal, while others may have to wait just a tad longer to become a part of our own personal medicine chests."

"While I don't wish to make light of the seriousness of whether or not marijuana should be legalized in this great country of ours, I will say that I am honestly just not sure what all the buzz is about. I mean, it is a natural organic substance and can be cultivated just like lettuce or tomatoes in so many of our good citizens' gardens. It's not like it is being concocted in some pharmaceutical lab. It is God's gift to man and government should have no hand in denying American citizens their God-given rights. Just ask those gun rights people about God-given rights."

"So let me make one thing perfectly clear. Marijuana is not a bad substance and the quicker we get legislation to make it legal to grow and possess it on a personal level, the quicker we'll get the bad guys off the streets and Mexico can go back to being a sleepy third-world country instead of thinking of new ways to get their Mexican brand of weed across the border."

At least that's what a bunch of my friends thought he was saying when they were all chowing down on some munchies and watching CNN News with the volume turned way down.
