Ozzy Osbourne Supports Marijuana Legalization
Stop the damn presses! Ozzy Osbourne has come out in favor of marijuana legalization! With various pieces of marijuana legislation on the ballot in nine states this election day, Ozzy is encouraging citizens to vote YES for weed.
The 2016 election may be a tipping point for recreational and medical marijuana in the United States. California, Nevada, Arizona, Maine and Massachusetts will have the opportunity to legalize recreational use of pot when they cast their ballots tomorrow (Nov. 8). Florida, Montana, Arkansas and North Dakota will vote on medical marijuana legislation, so the race between Donald and Hillary isn’t the only reason to visit your local polling site.
If you haven’t been listening to Black Sabbath’s “Sweet Leaf” for the past 45 years, here’s Ozzy’s view on weed via a fresh interview on SiriusXM. “It’s only a leaf. There’s more poison in tobacco,” Ozzy says. “The good thing about legalizing it is the people who grow it illegally, they don’t give a s—t what they use to fertilize it. A dear friend of mine smoked that every day, he died of the worst throat cancer ever. But if it was governed by the government, they’d have deadlines: you can’t mix this with that… You wouldn’t get sick.”
As for our choice for president, Ozzy shares, “If I was American, I don’t know who I would go for. If you don’t like either one of them, go for the one you like a little bit more than the other… Whoever gets in, if you don’t like Hillary or Donald Trump, whatever they do, it affects all of you.”
Sage advice from the Prince of Darkness! No matter who or what you’re voting for, be sure to cast your ballots tomorrow.
