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."

Marijuana smokers are prey to chest colds, bronchitis, emphysema, and bronchial asthma. Persistent use will damage lungs and airways and raise the risk of cancer. There is just as much exposure to cancer-causing chemicals from smoking one marijuana joint as smoking five tobacco cigarettes. And there is evidence that marijuana may limit the ability of the immune system to fight infection and disease.

Marijuana also affects hormones. Regular use can delay the onset of puberty in young men and reduce sperm production. For women, regular use may disrupt normal monthly menstrual cycles and inhibit ovulation. When pregnant women use marijuana, they run the risk of having smaller babies with lower birth weights, who are more likely than other babies to develop health problems.

So, you think there isn't anything wrong with legalizing Marijuana??? Think again.

No one cares? Even the lazy, welfare and tax draining, nutcase, deranged Californians seem to disagree with you, Arnold, given the fact they said hell f'n no to it on election day.

The minute pot gets legalized, the taxed pot will vanish. The Mexicans will fill the state with what amounts to bootleg pot. The Gov't wont see a dime of revenue, crime will increase. California should look at what happened to Amsterdam. Even they are moving to illegalize pot now. CA will be the world's druggie destination.

We don't smoke Mexican weed up here in Northern California. We smoke the good homegrown stuff. The people knocking weed are probably the same ones that drink scotch with a cigar after work every night. Everyone has their vice...live and let live.

Tell that to the children murdered last week in Juarez, Mexico by the cartel or the two UTEP students is week. If they can't sell pot the will continue with kidnapping & extortion. Drugs kill & wait till it is a love one of yours.

I think it is very disturbing the Governor made these comments in a public setting and that so many posters here also make the "pro-pot" statements in these public venues. Why? Because of all the young people who are hearing these messages. I guess everybody is too high to think before they speak. If you had the choice of your own child taking up the pot habit or not, what would it be? Those of you who say you wouldn't care if your child took up pot or other drugs are only trying to justify your own habit.

Of course no one cares, its a ridiculous law that never made any sense. People have more important things they should be concerned about these days. If you can only imagine the millions of lost government revenues from all the years of back taxes which could of been collected and millions saved from prosecuting then incarcerating pot smokers California plus many other states wouldn't be in deficit . Why would anyone stand in the way of legalizing and controlling something that for the longest time is being controlled by the underworld. How many underworld figures do you ever hear about who are in the alcohol bootlegging business or manufacturing their own cigarettes? Wonder how many pot smokers kill people driving high, get into violent fights, abuse their wives.. compared to those who are drunk or high on legal pills like oxy, xanex, percocet, valium, etc.... ? People said there would never be a black president until pigs could fly, guess I just saw one fly by or was that just a hallucination from the Cali purple kush
