In the new book, America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom, Daily Beast columnist Meghan McCain and comedian Michael Ian Black take a road trip across America and write about their experiences. The excerpt below is from their visit to New Orleans, and what happens after Meghan and Michael light up.
Meghan McCain: -SNIP-
Let me put it right out there. Yes, I have smoked marijuana a few times in the past. The first time was on a trip to Amsterdam in college and I was surprised by how mild of an experience marijuana was (and in my experience still is). It is a plant that makes me mellow and giggly and, quite frankly, tired. Yet, depending on where you are in the United States, smoking is possession, and that is either a misdemeanor or a felony. Split that hair however you want, its still a crime.
That being said, I believe that marijuana should be legalized. This is not a decision I have come to quickly or lightly. Over the course of the last four years, in discussions with friends pro and con, I believe the legal ramifications of possessing marijuana are egregious. For one reason, I think it is a substance that does no more damage than alcohol does, and second, if we legalized marijuana in this country and taxed the hell out of it, our economic problems would at least be temporarily helped a great deal. In fact, you could even use the revenue stream to pay for universal health care if you wanted.
Mostly though, I do not completely understand the allure and taboo associated with marijuana. -SNIP-

And yet many believe she is conservative.
The last thing she needs is something that makes you stupider.
I’d rather have mary jane legalized than these damn bath salts that people are doing that are making people eat peoples faces off.
Maybe she’ll smoke some laced with bath salts and eat her own face off. :-D.
Wow, maybe she’s not so dumb after all.
I'm all for legalization, and have no problem with anyone who wants to light up, but leave it to this dumbass to see tax revenue to pay for socialist programs in MJ legalization.
Did you miss the part where she wants to tax the hell out of it to pay for socialized healthcare?
Oh, all right, she's a moron.
Well, stoners, here’s another eloquent spokesperson for your favorite herb. Enjoy having this worthless twat supporting your cause.
See my Reply #12.
Has she ever been right about anything?
Jim Roth says yes to Megan McCain Shutting the F’ up!
I take it that she inhaled.
Huh? And I was thinking finally she got something correct.
While I am completely in favor of legalizing marijuana lets be honest about why she’s in favor of it.
It will increase her odds of getting laid by a factor of 100 at least. And I would have to be pretty baked to want to hit that.
Why is she still talking? Who the hell is letting her talk? Why is she allowed to speak in public? Who in their right mind wants her opinion on ANYTHING?
