2 Chainz Takes On Nancy Grace In A Debate Over Legalizing Marijuana [Video]

2 Chainz wants to be an advocate for the legalization of marijuana.
The I’m Different rapper went on Nancy Grace to defend his stance on the matter. The father of two, who graduated from college with a 4.0 GPA, held his own as he engaged Grace in a heated debate.
“I feel like everybody should basically take care of their own,” said 2 Chainz in response to reports of parents exposing their kids to pot. “It’s about governing your own household.”
Grace showed him a video of a mother giving pot to her toddler, and 2 Chainz called her out as a “bonehead.” Then 2 Chainz explained why pot should be legalized.
“It could cut out certain things in the criminal justice system as far as the overcrowding of prisons, as far as putting this on our criminal records to prevent us from getting loans, to prevent us from getting homes,” he said.
Then 2 Chainz used his 2013 tour bus case as an example and argued that policing marijuana is a waste of taxpayers’ money.
For me, I’m a tax payer. Okay? My bus gets pulled over and they say they smell weed like they do all the time. They find a grinder on my bus that has .01 of residue inside of it. Okay? They lock me up. They strip me. Then they find out I’m a rapper, and they want to know how fine Nicki Minaj is, they wanna take pictures and let me go. They obviously charged me with .01. I go to court. I go to trial. They say, ‘You pack your own bags. Is this your grinder?’ I tell them, ‘No.’ They say, ‘Well, who packs your bag?’ They find out my security does it. So, they drop my case. Then, they pick it up on my security who obviously beats the case. If that’s not a waste of tax payers’ time and money, I don’t know what is.
