Motor City Madman Ted Nugent is many things: NRA board member, a big-game hunter, and a right-wing conspiracy theory-preaching nut job. But a pot smoker he is not.
Though Nugent's Off The Record interview could rank as one of his more stable rants (if judging only by the volume of his voice), he kept with his twisted tradition of saying super fucked up shit.
Other takeaways: He believes embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a "great man," and that the "circus" surrounding his nomination is a "great manifestation of cultural deprivation." He refers to Islam as a "voodoo religion." He doesn't regret calling Senator Dianne Feinstein a "worthless whore," and instead of running for office himself he says his responsibility lies in "spotlighting cockroaches in a volatile political environment."
So yeah, positive, meaningful, intelligent decisions. Nightmarish rambling aside, Nugent did say he supports medical marijuana as a means to alleviate pain for those seeking relief. Considering marijuana has been proven to be successful in aiding in a laundry-list of ailments, forgive us for sparking up a fatty right now because Nuge — you're giving us a headache.
