Bro Lance you and I both know the drug well. What's your thoughts on someone being fined for doing it on television when it clearly isn't hurting anybody? Matter of fact, what do the rest of ya'll think?

I think the only people that marijuana hurts are the nutless fruitcakes in today's society. The people who say that its bad are those who are uneducated about it. It has proven itself time and time again in the medical world.

If the FCC is afraid of kids seeing this, do they REALLY think that they are up that late watching Bill Maher or understanding his show at all? I think not.

Yanno why people that are uneducated are always trying to block this stuff right?

Drama queens and attention seekers.

I keep hearing marijuana is safe, but the thought of smoking it icks me out. I don't want to put smoke of, well, anything inside my lungs, and I don't know if it shares the same components of tobacco that I'm allergic to, anyways.

That said, isn't it legal now? Why would they need to fine him at all? "Oh noes, save the children"? Honestly, I think that starts at home, not TV anyways...

It's legal in 20 states for medical purposes and is open for recreational use in Colorado and Washington. They can be rolled with or without tobacco and its essentially just a herb/plant rolled in paper.

Why they would fine him is beyond me, there's been far worse done on the tube. Nick, marijuana is safe as long as you do it correctly and Mikey is right about its medical practices. It reduces nausea caused from chemotherapy treatments and can also calm the muscle spams that are caused by MS.

For those who don't know all the diseases that it can help with. I take it to help with my RA and have been for a few months now.

Envy, I think the FCC would be all over it for the children and because majority rules on their board that every drug is a no-no, even the ones that have been proven to assist in medical. There are the parents these days that just plop their kids in front of the television and don't care.

Thanks Laura for posting that. I think those who are uneducated should look at that list and realize that they aren't right in their line of thinking in terms of marijuana.

A 1 million dollar fine is a bit much for something that's relatively harmless. I agree with the others that the guys in the FCC have no balls

I'm not sure where the saying comes from or if its part of a song, but it goes something like "people like to judge what they don't understand".

Sorry for the delay but you're very welcome Sheela and Lance. As Al just said, folks are bound to judge something they don't understand or base it off some some silly movie or television show. It needs to be based off of the facts!
