‘The View’ panel discusses Prop 19 and Joy Behar gets Flowers from Tea-Bagger Sharon Angle (Video)Author: Jon Martin | Wednesday, October 27th, 2010 |
Earlier today on ‘The View‘, Whoopi and the panel discussed California’s Proposition 19 or the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010. The panel overwhelmingly seemed to support the legalization of marijuana. Even Barbara Walters brought evidence that showed marijuana does not act as a ‘gateway’ drug, at least not in Amsterdam. Obnoxiously enough, Eric Holder, The Attorney General, says that even if Prop 19 passes, the government will continue to enforce the laws against marijuana at a federal level.
Whoopi says that if you make it legal, it becomes like liquor and it becomes easier to regulate and the government will make money and can tax it. Alcohol makes people do stupid things, Whoopi points out, saying that most people that smoke weed don’t even want to leave the house. Elizabeth tells Whoopi that she understands why people want it legalized but is quickly cut off as Whoopi points out that Elizabeth doesn’t know what weed is like because she’s never tried weed.
Earlier in the show, Joy revealed that Sharon Angle had sent her flowers. Joy called Sharon a ‘bitch’ yesterday because she used a stock photography picture of Latino people in one of her ads that painted Latino’s as scary and dangerous. The flowers were to thank Joy because after Joy’s tirade yesterday, Angle made $150,000 in campaign cash because of the incident.
Joy looked a little defeated as the audience applauded. It’s true, that was really well-played and made Joy look really dumb. What’s worse? Joy volunteered to show everyone. Bad move but at least Joy is honest enough to admit when people disagree with her, cowards like Sharon Angle won’t even take interviews from the press.
Later in the show, Joy Behar donated flowers to the Sloan Kettering Childrens Ward, and then $5,000 to Gods Love we Deliver. Whoopi also joined in and donated $5,000, followed by Barbara Walters. Who didn’t donate to the charity? The only two religious people on the show. What a surprise.
