This is one thing we never thought we’d see … 2 Chainz debating Nancy Grace on marijuana legalization.
The rapper stopped by the HLN show on Tuesday to talk with Grace about the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana, which made for entertaining television. The 40-year-old, who was arrested back in June 2013 for possession of weed, took a strong stance during his chat with the TV host. “Umm, I’m not sure if you know but everybody has the ability to get their hands on pot right now, whether it’s legal or not,” 2 Chainz explained. “I just feel like if you legalize this particular drug it could cut out certain things in the criminal justice system as far as the overcrowding of prisons.”
During the duo’s debate, Grace showed Tauheed Epps, the rapper’s legal name, a video of a man forcing his 2-year-old to smoke pot, suggesting that we have to think about the children. “That person had a problem deeper than weed,” he said. “It’s the same thing we talked about earlier, darling, with the legalization of alcohol. You will find some footage like this, but everybody is not doing this. Some people actually love their child. Some people know that it’s obviously wrong, so this is nothing to really argue about. These people are obviously imbeciles. You can’t use this case to define an entire community.”
Nancy responded, “As successful as you are, as rich as you are, as famous as you are, with this: Smoking California weed with California hoes,” she said, quoting the lyrics to the rapper’s track, “Feds Watching.”
Following the show, Chainz posted a photo on Instagram of himself and Grace with the caption:
“We still cool! That was a great debate thanks Nancy…bill o Reilly U up next! #TRUsday #TRUjackcity.”
