2 Chainz and Nancy Grace Debate Marijuana Legalization

2 chainz Nancy Grace Debate

2 Chainz and Nancy Grace seem like two public figures least likely to debate on live television, but it happened on Tuesday (Jan. 13). The rapper appeared on Nancy Grace’s HLN show to debate marijuana legalization, and things got very interesting.

Grace confronted the rapper with multiple cases of child abuse that involved weed, arguing that there is a correlation between child abusers and those who use marijuana.

“What I’m trying to say to you is that if this is legalized then everybody is gonna have unlimited access to pot,” she argued. “Unlike other people that are responsible, irresponsible child abusers are going to have free access.”

“I’m not sure if you know, but everybody has their ability to get their hands on pot right now whether it’s legal or not. I just feel like if you legalize this particular drug it could cut out certain things in the criminal justice system as far as the overcrowding of prisons, as far as putting this on our criminal record to prevent us from getting loans, prevent us from getting homes.. Just the whole thing around recreational weed is not making any sense to me,” he stated.

Her response? “If you want to qualify for a home, then why don’t you just not smoke pot? Why don’t you just not get arrested?”

The debate continued with the rapper, making some very sensible arguments about legalizing marijuana and how it would be less of a burden on the economy and the criminal justice system.
