Michelle Malkin: Full-Throated Pot Legalization Advocate
Michelle Malkin is a rather vicious pundit in my estimation, on TV and in her writing. She wrote a book defending the mass incarceration of Japanese-American citizens during World War II. She had a nice stint at Fox News (which she says - in the interview I link below - ended badly. No shit!) and took every opportunity to spew far right wing garbage to a gullible audience.
She’s good at throwing red meat to people who don’t know any better, and she’s done alright for herself.
Her mother-in-law had a serious relapse of melanoma. Upon her release from the hospital, Michelle Malkin had what alcoholics I think refer to as “a moment of clarity.”
“She was able to get out of the hospital, though she was still in an immense amount of pain, and we thought, ‘You know what? We’re going to take our doctor’s advice.’ How many mainstream doctors are advising their terminally ill or chronically ill cancer patients to do exactly what we did? They’re the ones who recommended, ‘You know what? Go ahead and try medical marijuana. It might help stimulate her appetite. It might help her nausea.’ We thought, ‘If you’re looking to provide relief or a boost in quality of life, why the hell not? It’s legal. It’s here.’ And so that’s how we got to the pot shop.”
