    CNN's Erin Burnett interviewed Barney Frank, asking him about marijuana prohibition. He admitted that he has tried marijuana once, he ate a pot brownie and feel asleep. He said that even though he doesn't use the drug really at all, that he is in full support of ending the prohibition on marijuana.

    Erin Burnett made he was being so liberal on the issue that she was momentarily confusing him (jokingly) with Ron Paul. He did say that the see very eye to eye on this issue, as well as on the issue of fully legalizing gambling.

    I'm glad to see that Barney Frank supports marijuana legalization.

    I am feeling so much disappointment in Erin Burnett that I jumped through hoops to post this comment. Why is it that I should be expected to jump through hoops to post an inquiry or observation, regarding a public broadcast that may or may not be detrimental to public opinion?

    Tonight, for the first time I saw the 'outfront' broadcast post an overtly honest representation of a topic that is vital to an americans well being, Regardless of (the individual's) income.

    And yet I still feel 'used' by CNN and Erin Burnett specifically.

    The reason for my post has changed from one of an appreciative viewer, to a regular annoyed and disenfranchised american citizen whos is at the mercy of the lies of bankers, stock brokers, congressmen, presidents and CNN too. Erin ... if you are worried about who is smoking grass, then you need to pull your head out of the gr .. ass and get into the 21st century. Grandma is whack and only cares about her medicare. I'm sorry you never tried a pot brownie, but your young yet and may still find that the stick in your butt may be easily removed by taking a chew on a little chocolate treat now and again. Ha ha yeah yata yata, that was a comment that will get many many snears in your news room. Too bad your news room is promoting prejudice that is over 100 years old. And to think that at one point, hemp was Americas #1 economic staple. So now Erin is bashing it to 'make a name for herself' and utilising the CNN corporate structure to base her comments on. Ppppphhhhfffff.

    I just hope that Romney and his idiot congressmen flunkies don't get a hold on our economy. That is what I signed on here to say. Why is it, that I was unable to find a commet board for tonights "upfront with Erin Burnett"? Comeon you morons, at CNN, are you going the way of the Nazi's?

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh damn this sukks.
    poop, J.M.
