Tonight: Jesse Ventura

Tonight at 9, the ever outspoken former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura returns to “Piers Morgan Tonight” for a very candid and rambunctious interview. On the heels of President Barack Obama's re-election Ventura has some thoughts on what the next four years will look like:

"I think the big thing he has going for him is that he has four years that he doesn’t have to worry about getting re-elected," said the former WWF wrestling star. "When the president’s in this position, having been elected a second time, now he’s got nothing to lose."

Ventura also celebrated voters in Colorado and Washington who passed ballot measures November 6 allowing adults over 21 to possess small amounts of marijuana under state regulation and taxation. "Hurrah for Colorado, hooray for Washington!" exclaimed Ventura.

"This will be a good thing to see if the federal government will back off and allow states to have states’ rights to things like drugs, marijuana."

Watch the clip and tune in tonight as Ventura praises the voters "who took the first huge, substantial step in ending this idiotic war on drugs."

    No matter what states want legalization of marijuana, there will always be illegal sales.
