I can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that prominent “liberals” are pooh-poohing an end to marijuana prohibition, but I guess it was progressive energy that put alcohol prohibition over the top too.

Anyway, this morning Rolling Stone Executive Editor Eric Bates discussed Ari Berman’s latest article on marijuana legalization, appropriately entitled “Just Say Now” (catchy, isn’t it?) Maria Bartiromo notes that the CNBC special on legalization was their highest rated show. Ever.

Lawrence O’Donnell doesn’t have to worry about ratings…for now. His new show debuts in September.

I guess that leaves Cenk Uygur to scoop up the enormous, young audience who enthusiastically support an end to prohibition, and O’Donnell can arm-wrestle Bill-O for the alter kockers.
