Arnold Schwarzenegger has sparked controversy by telling a magazine that marijuana is not a drug.

Although the Californian governor's spokesman insisted the comment was meant as a joke, the statement comes amid a fierce debate over whether cannabis use is not being taken seriously enough.

Despite having admitted taking marijuana in the 1970s, Schwarzenegger told GQ magazine that he had never taken drugs.

"That is not a drug. It's a leaf," Schwarzenegger told his interviewer Piers Morgan. "My drug was pumping iron, trust me."

Schwarzenegger also refused to condemn politicians who decline to answer questions about drug use.

"What would you rather have? A politician taking stuff and not saying, but making the best decisions and improving things? Or a politician who names all the drugs he or she has taken but makes lousy decisions for the country?" Schwarzenegger said. "A politician's job is to do what's best for the people and to improve the country, the economy, the environment. Why should I care if a politician takes sleeping pills every night so long as he can do his job?" he added. I

Asked to name his greatest leaders in history, Schwarzenegger placed Tony Blair alongside Nelson Mandela, John F. Kennedy and Mikhail Gorbachev.

He was more reticent about the achievement on fellow Republican George W Bush.

"I would say that I was ... very fond of his father. I worked for President Bush Sr., and he was a great man," Schwarzenegger said. "I think his son does some great things and there are some other things I don't agree with."

"That is not a drug. It's a leaf." :dumbass2:
More like..."I pump iron, not brain cells."

No, I don't think it's a drug either.

I would have said something like: "Marijuanna is not a drug, it's a plant." ...or : "It's a flower.".
But then again maybe the crap weed that Ahhnold smoked was all shake and he actually never smoked the bud. LOL

The amount of ignorance shown by the authority that is supposed to be "all knowing", never ceases to amaze me. If you are going to condemn something at least have the knowledge to do so in an informed manner. The THC that the plant secretes is the psychoactive component not actually the plant itself. The plant can even be grown in strains so that the THC excreted is virtually non-existent. That plant is called hemp and is used for clothes, oil and rope. But it's all one and the same to folks like Ahhnold.... they don't care enough to learn about it only that it serves their purposes and agendas.

alcohol is a drug derived from fermenting fruits or wheats.

cannabis is a plant. you don't alter it in any way. you just dry it and smoke it.

There are two problems here. Alcohol requires money and investment and space in order to turn a profit. Also most people drink in a bar or club. This all adds up to taxes of taxi drivers, pub owners, security etc. TAX

Pot is different. Anyone can produce it. stick in a plant pot and wait. no real training, easy money........... plus its not really for folk who go out to bars and get totally fucked up, thats the rub. Even if they DID legalize it they wouldn't make any money from taxes out of it. People would just grow it themselves.

Plus money laundering brings in way more than straight taxing this stuff. economics......
