They Said It On Marijuana Quotable Saturday, Part VII

Jay Leno — love him or hate him — made countless funny jokes in his career as host of “The Tonight Show,” and at least one of those jokes makes for a memorable marijuana quote:

Forty million Americans smoked marijuana; the only ones who didn’t like it were Judge Ginsberg, Clarence Thomas and Bill Clinton.

We like this quote not only because it is funny, but also because it so nicely encapsulates the hypocrisy of most Americans (and especially high profile officials) when it comes to marijuana. We also like how this quote highlights how the social stigma of marijuana has fallen away over the years, as demonstrated by another of our favorite quotes, this one from President Barack Obama:

When I was a kid, I inhaled. That was the point.

Cause honesty is still the best policy….
