12 Highlights from 2 Chainz & Nancy Grace’s Glorious Discussion of Weed Legalization — VIDEO
2 Chainz and Nancy Grace talking about weed? That is one collaboration that I never expected. Talk show host Nancy Grace and rapper 2 Chainz debated the legalization of marijuana on her show Tuesday evening, and, in all honesty, the video is a must-see. Throughout the talk, the hashtag #Pot2Blame was displayed across the screen. And yes, the whole thing is just as entertaining as it sounds.
As expected, 2 Chainz was a proponent of the legalization, while Grace cited the most outlandish cases about toddlers smoking weed in opposition. The rapper really kept it together during their discussion as Grace got increasingly heated — which is to say, she was typical Nancy Grace. I gladly watched the entire interview and broke it down into the following highlights:
- 2 Chainz explains the origin of both his stage names. His current one, 2 Chainz, and his former, Tity Boi.
- It's revealed 2 Chainz graduated from college with 4.0.
- Nancy Grace makes 2 Chainz watch a video of a toddler smoking a joint.
- 2 Chainz explains how legalizing pot would free up taxpayers money to fix problems like pot (pun intended?) holes in the street.
- Nancy Grace exclaims, "What does 'free up tax payers' money' mean?"
- Sound bites from Facebook fans are displayed throughout the discussion. I never thought I would see a "Go 2 Chainz" bulletin pop up on HLN and I loved it.
- 2 Chainz and Nancy Grace agree that caffeine "may be too strong" for children.
- Nancy Grace attempts to prove a point by asking 2 Chainz why he doesn't want his children to sell pot.
- Nancy Grace shows another video of a 2-year-old smoking pot.
- Tweets mentioning both Nancy Grace and 2 Chainz flash across the screen, which is just something I never expected to see in my lifetime.
- 2 Chainz refers to Nancy Grace as "darling."
- And best of all, in the middle of Nancy Grace scolding 2 Chainz for his tweets about smoking he just interrupts with "Truuuuuuu."
Please, check the videos out for yourself. A selection of highlights doesn't even begin to explain this amazingness.
