Arnold OKs Pot on Leno

Out-going California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger told Jay Leno Monday night that it was the wording that brought down Prop 19, not the idea. The Tonight Show crowd cheered when Leno then mentioned a new California law that reduces the punishment for anyone in the state carrying up to one ounce of pot to a $100 fine. “No one cares if you smoke a joint or not,” Schwarzenegger told Leno. The fine brings pot-possession down to the level of a speeding ticket.
