Schwarzenegger: 'No One Cares If You Smoke a Joint'

11/9/2010 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Soon-to-be-former governor of Kaleefornia Arnold Schwarzenegger couldn't have been more blunt on the topic of weed last night -- telling Jay Leno that in CA, "No one cares if you smoke a joint or not."

Ahnald hit "The Tonight Show" to talk about the recent elections, when Leno brought up a pro-pot bill the gov just signed, making cannabis possession "like a speeding ticket."

Arnold went on to explain that Prop 19 -- which would have sorta-legalized the recreational use of weed -- wasn't defeated in Kaleefornia because it was a bad idea ... but because it was written poorly.

It ain't the first time Arnold's spoken out in support of weed -- dude famously puffed on a joint in the 1977 documentary, "Pumping Iron."

Too bad elected officials can only speak the truth as lame ducks.

And for our next--Governor Moonbeam!!! yay! And our Lieutenant Governor is Gavin Newsom, the guy who as mayor of San Francisco kicked off the whole gay marriage movement. I love California.

Do you realize how many people the drug cartels kill while they are growing and smuggling the marijuana. (Including the murder of women and children) If you smoke it, you are no better than the drug lords. This is why the rest of the country looks at California as the armpit of America. No morals. That is why most of the kids out there grow up to be junkies and douchebags.

Oh Please stop the bull**** and Legalize it already. There is nothing wrong with smoking a joint every once in a while.
Alcohol is by far the Most dangerous and Legal, and yet people are still driving drunk. Outrageous.

The Doc Is In    

Let's see

18 to vote on who will lead our country
18 to choose to possibly die for our country
But only the feds can bless the vices we can choose from.
You simply cannot be trusted with such decisions.

Please put down the booze while fiening outrage over a plant

That's the way it should be. Better than being a drunk.
If you don't like it, then ****k off
Glad someone has enough common sense to realize this isn't 1940
