Drew Carey's Got the Right "Price" for Pot

11/3/2007 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forget controlling the pet population, new "Price Is Right" host Drew Carey has his own cause -- medical marijuana. Come on down!


The funnyman teamed up with Reason.tv to take a look at the trendy area of Brentwood, Calif. to show how someone can find a place to buy an alcoholic or heavily-caffeinated beverage on nearly every corner -- while the federal government is cracking down on something that can treat the effects of cancer, glaucoma, HIV-AIDS, chronic pain and nausea. Let's see a mocha frappuccino do that!

Carey is hoping the government will reclassify medical marijuana so that those who need it can get it. Maybe he should just give an ounce away in the Showcase Showdown!

Out of 20 comments posted Star, you have 8 of them. Way to kill a thread on an
important topic. And, none of your comments were even remotely informative or
intelligent. Why don't you start you own blog? Or, get a room w/your buddy, BFP? Goodbye.

I don't see the harm in just legalizing weed. There are far more dangerous drugs out there including alcohol.

Do they realize that the drugs that are being used for pain are far more addictive? Percocet, Vicodin, Oxycontin, etc.... Those freaking pills will hook you in a blink of an eye and ruin your life!

So some people wanna get high, so what! They're going to do it anyway.

Mister Penislessbrain speaks for the narrow-minded judgmental idiots who normals avoid like the plague. I`d gladly donate a few of my own as would many others I`m sure just to give him a nice dose of "wake the L up"! The majority rules on this one though, which is encouraging. Alcohol, tobacco, crack, cocaine and methamphetamines....pick any one of the five and any choice puts marijuana to shame on the damage or danger scale. Wake up and smell mother nature "powers that be" ! Get Your Priorities In Line With Reality !

The reason medical marijuana is illegal is because of the drug companies and their control over the goverment, via lobbying. It is so much better for the drug companies if you have to pay them 12 dollars a day for oxycontin (chronic pain reliever), and blow out your liver, kidneys and other organs, than for you to grow your own pain killer in your back yard, that works better for chronic pain, and doesn't hurt out those other organs, so you will not have to pay for other drugs to repair that damage.

Star you are an idiot. Plain and simple you are an idiot. You have already shown the world your ignorance so why don't you just shut your piehole. I used to smoke pot (high grade chronic) daily for years. Throughout college and on into my professional career. I stopped a while back because I figured I had had enough. During that time frame I shared the same views as you thinking pot should be legalized. Now I realize that is not the case. Why don't you just be honest with yourself and admit that you just want to get high. Not because you are in some kind of pain, but simply for the thrill of it. Life is much clearer off the stuff. It sounds like you are already burnt up though. If not I would suggest you try and abstain. By the way you really are a mornic idiot.
