The Power Line Show, Episode 10: Bill Bennett and Robert White on Marijuana

UnknownSteve, Paul and I got together this afternoon for Episode 10 of the Power Line Show. Our guests were Bill Bennett and Robert White, authors of Going to Pot: Why the Rush to Legalize Marijuana Is Harming America. We conservatives have become somewhat shell-shocked on the social issues, but do we really have to accept the health disaster that is legal marijuana? An average IQ loss of eight points, according to current medical research? Perhaps not. You won’t want to miss this discussion.

We also kicked around some of the issues of the day, including the administration’s rather bizarre Violent (not Muslim!!!) Extremism, and more. Paul had some thoughts on the NFL combine, too, but I don’t remember whether the recorder was on for those or not. Even when the news is grim, hearing the Power Line crew talking about it is entertaining.
