Fox host defends Republicans’ right to smoke pot

Gretchen CarlsonEven Republicans should be able to get stoned, according to a Fox News anchor. While interviewing Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson found herself in the curious position of advocating for marijuana rights Friday.

Chong told Carlson that he wants to see marijuana legalized — but not for Republicans. “We want to legalize pot for everyone that wants to smoke it. You know, we don’t want to legalize it for Republicans.”

Carlson quickly came to the defense of stoners in the GOP. “That wouldn’t be fair. Would it?” asked Carlson. “I mean being fair and balanced, if you want to legalize it shouldn’t you want to legalize it for everyone?”

“I want to legalize it for everyone,” answered Marin.

This isn’t the first time that the duo have pulled politics into their desire for legalization.

Only a week ago, the pair said they wanted to smoke with Sarah Palin. Marin believes she grows it herself in Alaska while Chong told Politico, “she answered a lot of questions like a stoner.”

The stars of “Up in Smoke” received “The Trailblazer Award” from the Marijuana Policy Project for their advocacy of marijuana legalization earlier this month. The two have now embarked on the “Get it Legal” comedy tour.

"No matter how much you punish me, I will remain confident in my decision," said the whistleblower.

Lawyers for Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning on Wednesday filed a motion for her release, saying her continued incarceration for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury is unlawful.

The motion, filed in the Alexandria, Virginia-based federal district court for the eastern district of Virginia, says that Manning's "incarceration is not serving its only permissible purpose"—to coerce her testimony. Rather, the motion argues, the detention is clearly punitive.
