Eric Braeden on Marijuana: “Legalize The Damn Thing” Luke Kerr August 12, 2010 Fox News, Geraldo at Large, The Young and The Restless 10 Comments On our first Pop Confidential podcast, the topic of legalizing marijuana–and taxing the hell out of it–came up as we were discussing Gossip Girl's Chase Crawford being busted for having it in his possession. It looks like The Young and the Restless’ Eric Braeden thinks the same thing. In an appearance on Fox’s Geraldo at Large, discussing California’s Prop 19, Braeden told Geraldo "Legalize the damn thing... We should tax the bloody thing. We need the revenue badly." Watch the segment after the jump! According to the segment, legalizing marijuana would raise up to 1.4 billion dollars annually for California, if it were taxed like alcohol.
