Pro-wrestler turned marijuana activist Rob Van Dam was back on the Geraldo Rivera show recently, this time taking on Republican Drug War crusader Ernest Istook.
RVD talked about legalizing and regulating marijuana to help stimulate the economy and compared the mild effects of marijuana to the damaging effects alcohol has on society.
This is RVD’s second time on the Fox News show in recent months, appearing in February to discuss Olympian Michael Phelps’s bong-smoking controversy.
Istook is a former GOP Congressman who is now a Fellow at the NeoCon froth-factory, The Heritage Foundation, and has his own radio talkshow. Istook seems to be the media’s prohibitionist go-to guy of late, appearing recently in a debate on CNN with Congressman Ron Paul (where he was so rude and obnoxious he managed to fluster the usually cool-as-a-cucumber Paul).
