Steven Crowder is a young conservative comedian and provocateur who is one of the few thinkers injecting a bit of fun into discussions of social policy. Crowder has a punchy style that often ruffles some feathers, but his videos also regularly feature intelligent commentary and argumentation on social issues.
Crowder’s latest video tackles myths about marijuana by mixing man-on-the-street interviews with expert testimony. It shows that marijuana really is harmful. It’s not nearly so inconsequential as some are saying today and has, as Crowder shows in this video, very serious long-term effects that don’t necessarily show up immediately.
I’m glad to see a young conservative tackling such matters from a punchy, lighthearted, media-savvy perspective. The conservative movement is woefully lacking in this area.
