I think drug czar John Walters has really lost it this time. Here he is, comically grim faced, chiding Hollywood for playing marijuana for laughs. Apparently, the nation's top drug policy expert believes adults not only can't be trusted to use marijuana responsibly, they also can't be trusted to view material that depicts marijuana users as anything but the deranged hedonists who so clearly haunt his nightmares.

By the way, I'll be on CNN's "Showbiz Tonight" at 11 p.m. Eastern this evening talking about how popular culture's take on marijuana has evolved. Just don't expect me to be as funny as Mr. Walters.
