Larry King to Discuss Marijuana Legalization Tonight on CNN

CANNABIS CULTURE – CNN News mainstay Larry King will discuss marijuana legalization tonight at 9pm ET with Montell Williams, Stephen Baldwin, and Charles Lynch, owner of a California medical marijuana dispensary busted by the DEA. Though medical marijuana is legal in the state of California, Lynch is facing up to 100 years in a federal prison.

King’s CNN website poses the question “Should Marijuana Be Legalized?” and continues “Will President Obama make history and legalize the use of marijuana? Not if opponents can help it! Montel Williams, Stephen Baldwin and other debate the issue!”

According to the website Friends of CCL (Charles C. Lynch), Lynch will also appear on the show.

Lynch, whose dispensary was raided by the post-Obama DEA, recently had his sentencing postponed by a federal judge who said he wanted more information about a reported change in the Justice Department’s policy, as President Obama recently told the agency to respect state laws and leave medical dispensaries alone.

    How about having some “regular” folks on the show explaining how their lives have improved with the use of cannabis. If we want opinions to change let the audience see how it helps everyday people lead functional lives. Leave the Hollywood bumpkins at home.

    i’m tired of not seeing experts on to discuss. i don’t want to hear montel williams version, although i think he might be pro pot i’m not sure but either way he’s not an expert. screw stephen baldwin he’s an actor this guy can convince people of anything it’s their job and i seen him talk about it too he has no expertise but the owner is good that way you can show off how much knowledge the people have that run the stuff and i want to see an economist talk about how it’s the number one cash crop and see if that dn’t help shit out plus it’s not dangerous at all so what’s the mafuckin harm being done right then we need an expert on the medical value of it and maybe rick simpson too and actually you know what you might as well keep stephen baldwin in their too just to make him look really bad haha sweet peace out

    Instead of having celebrities argue the for/against issues, why not invite someone from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition whose members have been in the trenches their entire careers. They’ve witnessed the failures, broken homes, violence, corruption, etc… It’s being played out on the border in Mexico, and in our inner cities. We’ve spent a trillion dollars, packed our jails to beyond capacity…..and the stuff is just as easy to get then ever. Check out their website at http://www.leap.cc It’s ludicrous to turn otherwise law abiding, tax paying citizens into criminals for something that should be a personal freedom.

    Tonight was a dissapointment. Montel, was in my opinion, not well enough prepared to argue the topic, he constantly went back to his first and seemingly only point about the Compassionate Investigational New Drug Program, a thirty year old program started by our government to distibute cannabis to a select few americans. However, this only applies to a select few americans. Steven Baldwins comment comparing cannabis to alcohal was completely out of context. Alcohal is a much more harmful drug, and this is a fact. The government can only make $100 billion a year off of alcohol taxation as Mr. Baldwin said. There is also a large liability involved with alcohol; alcohol poisoning, liver disease, and alcohol dependence. All costly conditions that us, the taxpayers pay for! This risks are not involded with marijuana. It’s time to stop looking the other way! People used to say cannabis users were the ones going against the grain, well we’re with the grain now so join the cuase!

    stephen baldwin actually used the false gateway drug theory as a reason to keep cannabis illegal. he doesn’t want anyone ingesting the drug. he opposes its use even for dying patients in a controlled environment in a hospital. if that is the best opponents can do, then the end of prohibition is near.
    mr. baldwin is a squinty lying douche bag.
