I have absolutely no idea why Nancy Grace has her own show. I’ve literally never met a single person who claims to follow her in any sort of serious way, and I can’t imagine who would view this woman as a credible source on much of anything. She’s just awful.
And while I wouldn’t call myself anything close to someone who has watched a ton of her programming, I have seen my fair share – though I try to avoid watching her at all costs. That being said, the segment I just watched was easily the most ridiculous I’ve ever seen Grace act, and that’s saying a lot considering who this woman is.
If you’re not aware, Grace is extremely anti-marijuana. I’ve encountered quite a few anti-marijuana people in my day, but I’ve never seen someone like her. She doesn’t even deal with factual or credible methods of debate when discussing whether or not marijuana should be legal. All she does is find stories on the Internet where someone who had THC in their bloodstream did something negative, and that’s literally the extent of her arguments against marijuana.
This segment was no different as all she did was focus on a case in Colorado where a husband shot his wife and was later found to have used marijuana prior to committing the heinous crime.
Well, Dr. Drew (not someone anyone would really call pro-pot) was one of her guests, and even he couldn’t tolerate her idiocy. He brought up the fact that police found empty prescription pill bottles in the residence which could indicate that this individual was suffering from withdrawals and was simply using marijuana as some kind of a substitute hoping it might replace the pills he no longer had.
Pretty simple argument, right? Withdrawal is the absence of a certain substance(s) so if there were empty pill bottles, and nothing besides THC in his system, it’s not outside of the realm of possibility that he could very well have been suffering from all sorts of other issues relating to a possible dependency on prescription pills.
But Grace was having none of that argument. She continued to repeat over and over that there was no other substance found in his system except THC, as Dr. Drew continued to point out that the fact that no other substance was found in his system (along with the fact that there were empty pill bottles in his residence) actually supported his theory that this person was suffering from withdrawals from other substances.
No matter how many times Dr. Drew repeated what the term “withdrawal” meant, it had no impact on Grace repeatedly blathering on about the fact that no other substances were found in his system. So she was either too stupid to understand what going through a withdrawal actually means, or she was flat-out ignoring Dr. Drew’s facts because they weren’t supporting the narrative she was trying to push.
I’ve experienced quite a few people ignoring facts before, but I’ve never seen anything like this. She continually emphasized over and over that there was nothing else found in his bloodstream, prompting Dr. Drew to repeatedly point out that nothing else being found in his bloodstream with the presence of empty pill bottles at his home are facts that support his withdrawal theory – and Grace would literally just keep repeating “then why was nothing else found in his system?”
Even if you just can’t stomach this woman, I would encourage you to skip ahead in the clip below to the 6:40 mark and just watch the following 90 or so seconds. I’ve really never seen anything like it. Her behavior during this segment was easily one of the most absurd things I’ve ever witnessed.
