When it comes to recreational marijuana, Nancy Grace is a bit of a buzz kill.
The television personality paid a visit to CNN's Brooke Baldwin to speak about the legalization of pot in Colorado.
Grace is not a fan of the law, telling Baldwin she thinks that legalizing marijuana for recreational use is a "horrible idea." Grace said that she wouldn't want anyone on pot to take care of her kids or drive a cab. She then went for the jugular, claiming that anyone who disagreed with her was "lethargic, sitting on the sofa, eating chips ... fat and lazy."
Whoa. The gauntlet had been thrown down. The only question was whether or not pot enthusiasts could summon the will to get to a Web-enabled device and fire back.
They did, and the humorous retorts did not disappoint.
Nancy Grace thinks pot smokers are lazy? False. I've never been more motivated to get @TacoBell in my life.— Tee-Aye-Are-Aye (@th3_st0rm) January 6, 2014
As a fat and lazy person, I don't appreciate Nancy Grace accusing me of smoking pot— D Funk Time Michaels (@darinlovesbacon) January 6, 2014
Steve Huff on Twitter pointed out that Colorado is actually the thinnest state in America.
Nancy Grace called marijuana users fat & lazy. Yeah, that's totally why Colorado is the thinnest state in the US: http://t.co/Xc6ECfSki6— STEVE HUFF (@SteveHuff) January 6, 2014
Even "God" chimed in with a bon mot.
Nancy Grace just called pot smokers "fat and lazy". Right. Unlike the buff marathon runners home 4 o'clock on a Monday watching your show.— God (@TheTweetOfGod) January 6, 2014
