Rapper 2 Chainz and television news anchor Nancy Grace got into a debate last night (January 13) about the legalization of marijuana on her television show.
“You’re a star, so many people, so many teens, so many young adults, look up to you,” Nancy said on the show. “Can I ask you, when you hear about cases like this, why do you still support the legalization of marijuana?”
“They had alcohol included, which we all know causes you to black out, forget things, and have memory loss,” 2 Chainz said back. “They also [were] irresponsible people. I don’t think that you could put an umbrella on the whole community off these few incidents that you just named… the smokers, the stoners community… You can’t use these particular stories to define everybody that has recreational use.”
“I’ve seen video of you smoking a big fat doobie, I’ve read your lyrics… In one of your lyrics you say, ‘I don’t fear death or dying, I only fear not trying,’” Nancy said. “Some of your lyrics are so incredible, but then other of your lyrics advocate a different kind of lifestyle that I don’t think you would want little children exposed to. I mean, do you have children?”
“I have two beautiful little girls and I’m a great father,” 2 Chainz added back. “Everybody should basically take care of their own. You have kids too, as well, right? It’s about governing your own household. It’s about taking care of your own property. It’s about having some kind of structure in anything.” Watch the debate below…
