Many may not know that before his Rap career, 2 Chainz finished number two in his high school class and attended college. The resilient MC has a strong command of the language both on and off the mic. He donned his debate hat on CNN recently and had a substantive back and forth with Nancy Grace about the merits of legalizing marijuana. He spoke about what he saw as the incidental but significant positive effects that would accompany legalization, such as reducing the number of people populating jails because of relatively benign drug charges and minimizing the number of people who are unable to secure loans and buy homes due to marijuana-related felonies. Whether you agree with him or not, he presented his arguments clearly and credibly. Check out the video.
