Roseanne Barr

Already a (Bong) Hit

with Weed Advocacy Group

2/7/2012 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0206_rosanne_EX_01Roseanne Barr's soon-to-be failed run for President just got a little pick me up -- thanks to the biggest pro marijuana group around, which just announced its support for the comic-turned-politician.

The Executive Director of NORML (National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws) -- a guy named Allen St. Pierre -- tells TMZ, the group supports any candidate "who will adopt a pro-cannabis law reform plank as part of their political platform" ... especially Roseanne.

St. Pierre adds, "NORML welcomes Roseanne’s public support for ending a failed 74-year-old Cannabis Prohibition."

As we previously reported, Barr announced her intention to seek the highest office in the land and will go after the Green Party's nomination, campaigning to legalize marijuana.

Roseanne has a long history of being pro pot -- her classic sitcom even did an episode on the subject in the mid 90s. Roseanne also lives in two states (Hawaii and California) with progressive marijuana laws. Probably not a coincidence.

If only pot heads vote, she might just have a chance.

Kinda sux that if you dont have an R or a D next to your name while running for office, its automatically labeled a "soon-to-be failed run for President".

The high-as-a-kite woman is off her rocker. Has everyone seen how abusive she's been to the Public on Twitter?! She needs help.

Dan I have, she even banned me from following her on twitter, and all I did with her was disagree. I use to be a fan, but the woman is truly NUTS. Seriously, she needs help but obviously it's probably too late for that...

Three failed marriages, mental health issues, estranged relationships with her children... she can't take care of her personal life so what makes her think she can run this country? I'm just saying ...

She is delusional. What knowledge does she have that will help our country? Why does she think she can be a viable candidate. Her family needs to check her meds before she gets truly out of hand!

If the U.S. legalized pot, there would be no more debt. They would once again be the most powerful country in the world.

Americans are very stupid. If you legalized pot, all of your financial problems would be over. But instead, you will continue to start wars to stimulate your economy. The last 10 trillion for Iraq is gone. Are you feeling safer?

mmmk - so i took a gander at the photos you have of peeps smokin up. so...in a nutshell, we'd like to follow the paths of the likes of miley cyrus (a has-been in her own time), kid rock (what's he done lately? oooh right, he's out smokin the gang), amy whinehouse (rip), robert blake (probable killer - and social/media pariah), vanilla ICE?! ("yeah i invented that riff - while i was high...listenin to david bowie!") nelson (no doubt, in his airstream trailer, obviously livin high on the hog there), k fed (really? need i say more?). i would go on, but i think that i've made my point. f*kin derelicts. i'm not against. its just that there is an uncanny correlation between the stagnation of stars careers and their extracurricular activities of choice.

Want to legalize the green? Join the Green Party!

I'm supporting Jill Stein for president, but she's against prohibition too. Check her out:

Why not? At this point let her have a shot. The politicians cant do it, why not let the pot head, then maybe race car driver, then a cheerleader. Why the h*ll not? Nothing else is working no matter what side of the party lines are in office. Geesh. At this rate Ill be broke by next Tues. (lol)
