Funnyman Lewis Black Gets Serious About Pot

Usually Lewis Black has my eyes welling up from incessant laughter, but this clip of the gruff Daily Show comedian speaking seriously about marijuana legalization nearly brought tears to my eyes.

“My feeling is that we need to leave a legacy behind,” Black told SIRIUS radio hosts Derek and Romaine. “I believe this is what my generation came to the planet to do, and that is legalize pot. If we do that we leave behind a true legacy.”

“Is that a good legacy?” one of the hosts asks.

“It’s a tremendous legacy; it really is.”

    Yeah, again a comedian makes more sense than our politicians while the politicians are acting more ridiculous than our comedians. More evidence that God has a wicked sense of humor…

    Lewis did a show about weed vs. beer a couple of years ago and it was wonderful. Oh yeah, weed won hands down. We better get this legalized or the next generation will take credit for it!
