Watters and Gutfeld Throw Down on Drug Legalization

Posted: June 22, 2022 at 11:33 am

Greg Gutfeld took on all-comers during a discussion on drug legalization during Thursdays edition of The Five.

The co-hosts discussed the impact of Oregons decriminalization of small amounts of almost all drugs. Oregon sought to make treatment available to drug users instead of jail cells. However, very few users have availed themselves of help and fatal overdoses have increased.

This is what happens when drugs are illegal, Gutfeld stated, noting that street drugs often contain the substance in uncertain amounts, as well as adulterants.

All of these poisonings are street concoctions, he said. We always just say, Oh, its opiates. But its actually a toxic poison, its street fentanyl. This is not prescription stuff. So if you loosened the restrictions on prescription [drugs], you will save lives.

He concluded, Thats all I have to say!

Jesse Watters wasnt convinced.

I am not buying this libertarian mumbo-jumbo, he said.

What? Its called facts, Gutfeld protested.

This is a perfect example of libertarianism gone wrong, Watters continued. Greg has been singing the song ever since I came on The Five. Legalize drugs, legalize drugs, decriminalize it. They did it. Oregon listened to Gutfeld. Now, look at Oregon. Everyones dead. Thats what happens when you listen to Greg. You die.

Gutfeld replied, What Im saying is, if somebodys actually using a safe drug, this doesnt happen.

Is heroin a safe drug? asked Jeanine Pirro.

People actually take heroin, yes, he replied. Do you know that fentanyl is actually a drug that is prescribed? Are you aware of that?

Did you know that youre wrong? said Watters.

You will never win this debate, Gutfeld shot back.

If you do what Greg says, you dont get the crap from China, Dana Perino chimed in.

Thats my point, he responded.
