Published Nov 14, 2018You probably don't remember by now, but Canada made history by legalizing recreational marijuana last month. And while our country has remained more or less the same since then, the fact that weed is now allowed is still pissing off some conservatives around the world. Enter Ted Nugent.
Appearing on "Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon," the Nuge had plenty to say about Canada and cannabis.
"Canada is absolutely crazy," he said. "I love my Canadian friends, but Trudeau is comfortably numb, and when you're comfortably numb, you make stupid decisions. And I would just propose to you that after 70 years of an American Dream, of being the best that I can be and forced by disciplining parents that loved me to be the best that I can be, I have never seen one moment of positive outcome from someone getting high."
He continued: "Who do you want high? Your babysitter? How about your kids' school bus driver? How about your pilot? How about your dentist comfortably numb? How about the cops high?"
Nugent added, "It's unbelievable that you could possibly witness the heartbreak and destroyed lives from people being comfortably numb and high, and the loss of life and the loss of dignity in the tragic vapor trail of substance abuse, and then actually pursue it."
Though it may come as a surprise, Nugent is not against pot in all of its forms. "I'm all for medical marijuana, I'm all for medical anything, as long as it's really beneficial to people suffering from health issues, but to legalize recreational comfortably numb is a guaranteed script for ruined lives," he said.
But then he started talking about feces for some reason.
"Now, people will squawk and piss and moan that I'm a nasty guy and I'm against freedom and against individual choice," he added. "Well, I'm all for freedom, but if that includes shitting in the water upstream from my pursuit of happiness, you're gonna have to relocate your shitting procedures. You can't poop upstream from my American Dream, or my Canadian Dream. You have to poop somewhere where it doesn't flow downstream to other people's lives. And in the use and the abuse of substances, I'm sorry — there are no winners. Period."
