CA Gov. Jerry Brown Provides The Dumbest Anti-Marijuana Legalization Argument Yet

Sometimes there are quotes of such deep idiocy that they demand attention. California Governor Jerry Brown issued one such quote this past Sunday regarding the legalization of marijuana during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“We have medical marijuana, which gets very close to what they have in Colorado and Washington. I’d really like those two states to show us how it’s going to work,” he said. “The world’s pretty dangerous, very competitive. I think we need to stay alert, if not 24 hours a day, more than some of the potheads might be able to put together.”

I’m literally laughing as I type this, re-reading that ridiculous stance on the legalization of marijuana. Does he really think that the great downfall of our nation will be because everyone is just “toooooo stoned to like, get the threat, man?” Really? This man was elected Governor. Of a STATE.

What’s funny is that when I first read this quote, I thought he was referring to the United States’ competitive edge in industry, which I would have debunked by citing the numerous genius-level billionaires who openly use and support marijuana (because of its assistance with creative or divergent thinking). Little did I expect that this was instead about national security and Americans being too stoned to keep track of threats to our well-being on an international level.

Governor Moonbeam No More

When California Governor Jerry Brown was in power the first time around—in the 1970s—he was known for embracing ideas out of the mainstream. He was somewhat of a hippie governor. He hung out with Jackson Browne and The Eagles. Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead called Brown his hero. Brown even dated Linda Ronstadt.
