MSNBC's O'Donnell: 'Great State of Colorado Made Marijuana History Today'
On Tuesday's The Last Word show, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell trumpeted the legalization of recreational marijuana use in Colorado. He began the segment by proclaiming that Colorado had made "marijuana history." O'Donnell:
The great state of Colorado made marijuana history today. Governor John Hickenlooper signed several bills into law that will govern the cultivation, sale and taxation of recreational marijuana. Yes, recreational, not medical. Adults over the age of 21 can possess up to an ounce of marijuana. And there are strict rules as to how pot can be grown and how much can be grown, as well as a legal limit to how much marijuana you can have in your system while driving.
He poked fun at marijuana users as he concluded:
Now, if you need the skinny on that legal limit right now before you get in your car, you will find it on our Web site, if you can make your way to the Internet right now.
