Over the last decade or so, recreational marijuana sales have become quite commonplace in Blue States. Today, NJ Governor Phil Murphy commemorated the first day of sales in his state. And politicians like Ted Lieu celebrated 4/20 on Tuesday.
Still, the drug has not been legalized at a federal level. Tommy Chong, the star of a number of cannabis-based comedies, would like to see that change. And he’d like to see more politicians partake in the drug as well. During a recent podcast appearance, Chong explained why Joe Biden needs to get high.
Jordan Chariton, the host of the Status Coup podcast asked, “If you could, you know, light up a little cannabis with one modern-day politician, who would it be?”
“Politician? Joe Biden,” Chong replied. “Oh man. He needs to get high so bad. Poor Joe.”
The comedian continued, “Unfortunately, Hunter had an opioid, some kind of alcohol, opioid, some kind of addiction. But, you know, Joe needs to get high. Joe’s there, but he’s not quite.”
