Meghan McCain on Marijuana: Legalize It!

by at . Comments

Meghan McCain enjoys the occasional joint, but that's not the reason she thinks it should be legal, though, as she explained on The Tonight Show.

In her new book America, You Sexy Bitch, McCain devotes an entire section advocating for the legalization of pot on numerous grounds.

"I was living in Los Angeles last year, and I was shocked at how people smoke weed the way people in New York pour wine," she said.

"Once I started doing research onto the potential economic benefits for our country by decriminalizing marijuana, I decided to come out publicly in support of it."

The daughter of John McCain repeated her comments on The View Wednesday morning, adding that she's "not a cannabis user ... frequently."

When Barbara Walters quipped that her "father's going to be so proud," Meghan McCain responded, "He knows everything ... and he loves me."

The discussion prompted Elisabeth Hasselbeck to suggest a breathalizer-style system for testing pot users' levels of intoxication before they drive.

Sherri Shepherd's response: "You don't leave the house when you're high."

McCain went on to name her preferred running mate for Mitt Romney - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie - and lament the lack of moderates in the GOP.

Once marijuana is legal, then plain old hemp will be legal too! Millions of new jobs, new food, a reborn textile industry, excellent biofuel... it would be the absolute BEST thing fro america (the United States of America).

At least the govt can collect taxes on it. Can regulate it's quality and the cost will go way down.
Should be like buying beer. Health problems are a lot less than alcohol. I will love living in a state where
Marijuana is legal but you can't get a big gulp or have sex in a parked car.

Meghan McCain Quotes

I have not known Bristol Palin very long, but there is a certain kinship I feel to her as I do other political daughters such as Chelsea Clinton, Jenna and Barbara Bush and Mary Cheney.

You can't fully understand it unless you have lived it. So I just wanted to let it be known that I support Bristol and the entire Palin family.
