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.”
