Jon Stewart Calls Out Media For Belittling Cannabis And Glorifying Alcohol

Via Higher Perspective
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart recently called into question the mainstream media, particularly FOX News (because why the fuck wouldn’t you?) for ridiculing cannabis and belittling its users, but having no issue glorifying alcohol, even though it’s been proven over and over again to be far more dangerous and detrimental than cannabis.

Jon Stewart makes a great point that pot is less harmful than alcohol, but the media personalities still celebrate alcohol while demeaning cannabis.

Stewart also had no issue taking on Bill O’Reilly’s assertion that smoking cannabis is “literally Russian roulette,” which brings me to another point: people need to stop using literally so liberally in their vocabulary. Especially if what you’re describing is figurative.

Although one aspect of Russian roulette that differs significantly from cannabis, in O’Reilly’s mind, is that cannabis should be illegal but everyone should own any kind of gun they want.
