Former NFL defensive end and linebacker Jason Taylor appeared on CNN's inaptly named roundtable show (Get To) The Point last week, where he said some cringe worthy statements about marijuana policy reform:
"Just because the status quo is not working on law enforcement right now does that mean that, 'You know what we can't beat it so let's just legalize it and do it?' ... Well you know what, it's against the law to rob banks. If we can't control it, just legalize it. What's next? What's next? I mean really, what's next?"
Aside from equating marijuana use to robbing banks, Taylor also likened it to crack and suggested that legalizing and regulating marijuana would result in the legalization of cocaine, ecstasy, and other "crazy outside-the-box drugsja."
In another bizarre - but this time awesome - moment in sports-related news, legendary sportscaster Bob Costas named Ludacris as his favorite rapper for being the first to "name check" him and then proceeded to quote the following lyric from Luda's "Hip Hop Quotables" song:
"Now I roll up torpedoes, get blunted with rastas
For a hefty fee, I'm on your record like Bob Costas."
