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

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."
