Debate of the Day: Nancy Grace and 2 Chainz Argue About Legalizing Marijuana

Nancy Grace is not a fan of legalizing weed, and she had rapper 2 Chainz on her show Tuesday night in an epic debate about it called "#Pot2Blame".

The host tried and failed to convince him that changing the law would turn all children into pot smoking fiends, using a few videos of parents forcing their kids to smoke as an example.

"Some people actually love their child," he said. "Some people know that this is obviously wrong, so this is nothing to really argue about. These people are imbeciles. You can't use this case to define a whole community."

2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, came off as the calm, collected one and Nancy Grace probably should have taken a few hits herself before the interview to calm down. He argued that everyone can pretty much get weed if they want already, and that legalizing it would help with certain issues like the overcrowding of prisons and wasted tax dollars.

"We're in a deficit. We've got to find ways of getting out," he said. "If we got half of the states legalizing pot, if the rest of the community legalizes pot that frees up taxpayers money, that'll allow us to do something with this extra with these funds from fixing potholes in the street to building stadiums. I'm down with it."

Another great moment was when she read some of his lyrics to question his position as a role model for kids.

"'Smoking California weed with California whores' — excuse me, 'true.' I left that out," said Grace.

"Truuuue!" replied 2 Chainz.

He politely thanked her on his Twitter account afterwards and teased another debate that we hope will happen very soon.
