THE MOST INTERESTING TAKEPOT.

CAME FROM BILL O'REILLY'S THE OLD TIMEY

AMERICANA RESTORATION HOUR.

>> IF YOU USE ANY INTOXICATINGAGENT YOUR GOAL IS TO LEAVE

REALITY.

YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THECURRENT STATE OF MIND.

YOU WANT TO GET HIGH, BLASTED,WHATEVER.

SOME ADULTS CAN HANDLE THAT, SOME CANNOT.

IT'S LITERALLY RUSSIAN ROULETTE.

>> Jon: LITERALLY?

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUTLITERALLY?

I THINK THE ONLY DIFFERENCEBETWEEN A BONG HIT AND POINTING

A LOADED GUN AT YOUR OWN SKULLIS THAT THE GUN CAN KILL YOU

INSTANTLY AND MUST NEVER BECRIMINALIZED OR RESTRICTED IN

ANY WAY EVER -- EVER!

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]AND THEN -- BY THE WAY, I WANT

TO POINT OUT TO THE AUDIENCE ATHOME, THEY ARE APPLAUDING

IRONICALLY.

[LAUGHTER]THEN THE JUST SAY NO PART OF THE

PROGRAM TOOK A BIT OF A HAIRPINTURN.

>> NOW MORE BAD NEWS, COMBINETHE DRUG ASPECT WITH THE

INTERNET.

ACCORDING TO THE REPORT BY THEAMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS,

75% OF 12-17 YEAR OLDS IN THEU.S. HAVE CELL PHONES AND

VIRTUALLY ALL OF THEM TEXT.

[LAUGHTER][LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: WHATTHE HELL JUST

HAPPENED?

HOW DO WE GO FROM JUST SAY NOAND WHAT IS WITH ALL THE BEEP

BEEP, BOOM BOOM MACHINES ANDWITH THE LOL AND THE TTYL AND

THE MUSIC AND THE DANCING ANDTHE PELVIS

AND WHOA!

YOU WOULDN'T HAPPEN TO HAVE ASURPRISING EXAMPLE OF A SOCIETY

AND CULTURE THAT IS GETTING ITRIGHT HERE THAT PERHAPS

UNDERCUTS THE INHERENT MESSAGEIN EVERYTHING YOU AND YOUR

COLLEAGUES AT FOX HAVE SAID.

>> IN CHINA THEY TEACH KIDS TOCOMPETE, TO BE DISCIPLINED, TO

LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD, NOTHERE.

>> Jon: WHY CAN'T AMERICA BEMORE LIKE THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC

OF CHINA?

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]AND WHILE THE TRUTH IS THE

CHINESE USED TEXT MESSAGING MORETHAN ANYBODY ELSE IN THE WORLD,

I GUESS THE THOUGHT BEHIND THISIS, YOU COULD KEEP KIDS FROM

TEXTING SO MUCH BY RESTRICTINGTHE SIZE OF THEIR FAMILIES

THROUGH CENTRAL PLANNING.

MY FAVORITE PART, HOWEVER, WASWATCHING A COLUMBIA PROFESSOR,

AN EXPERT ON DRUG POLICY TAKE INTHIS NEW DRUG AND TESTINGTAKE IN

PHENOMENON.

>> KIDS AND POT YOU DON'TRECOMMEND THAT, RIGHT?

>> OF COURSE NOT.

I DON'T RECOMMEND KIDS TAKINGALCOHOL OR SMOKING.

>> I APPRECIATE THAT.

TEXTING YOU KNOW IT'S ANADDICTION.

IT'S GOING CRAZY.

ARE YOU AWARE OF THAT?

>> I'M NOT AWARE IT'S ANADDICTION.

[ LAUGHTER ]>> Jon: WAIT, WAIT SMART BLACK

GUY WITH DREADS DISAGREES WITHME, I WILL DO THE OPPOSITE, GET

ME A BALD WHITE IDIOT.

>> TEXTING, THE INCESSANT USE OFFACEBOOK, THE USE OF MARIJUANA

NOW.

>> Jon: YOU'LL DO JUST FINE.

[ LAUGHTER ]SORRY I INTERRUPTED YOU YOU WERE

RAILING AGAINST THE MARIJUANATEXTING INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.

BY THE WAY FOR EXTRA BONUSPLEASURE WATCH THE GUESTS

REACTION TO DR. ABLOW'SEXPERTISE.

>> EVEN THE PEOPLE WHO CANIDENTIFY THIS AS A HUGE PROBLEM

ARE USING TEXTING.

IT DEPOSITS THEM IN A VIRTUALWORLD WHERE THEIR FEELINGS DON'T

NEED TO HAVE INTEGRITY.

WHERE THEIR INTENTIONS CAN BETHE SAME AS A POT SMOKERS,

NONMOTIVATIONAL, LOOKING FOR THENEXT HIGH.

YOU SAY TO THAT?

>> I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> Jon: I GUESS I COULD SAY
