Lawrence O’Donnell: Marijuana Is Healthier Choice Than Alcohol


The simple truth about marijuana is shining through more and more cracks in the mainstream’s tottering wall of denial.
During an impassioned argument for the legalization of cannabis, MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell, host of “The Last Word,” highlighted the relative safety of marijuana compared to alcohol.

O’Donnell called marijuana a “healthier choice,” and criticized hypocritical lawmakers who “get high” on booze yet punish cannabis users for seeking a “non-liquid high.”
