Okay folks, this one is rich-- prepare to put in in your Miss America Pageant Blooper scrapbook right next to Miss South Carolina's, Caitlin Upton, because I have to tell you, it don't get better than this. If you didn't watch the Miss America Pageant 2013 on Saturday evening then you not only missed out on watching some of the most beautiful women in the nation prance around a stage in gorgeous regalia and scant bikinis, but also one of the funniest blond moments around as Miss Iowa 2013, aka Mariah Cary, accidentally found herself smiling and supporting recreational marijuana use.
Now, not to say Miss Iowa representative, Mariah Cary, is necessarily against the recreational toke up, but it seemed when posed with the question concerning how marijuana should be used, she was attempting to let the audience know she only condoned its use for medicinal purposes. However, whether it was nerves or just a sad lack of vocabulary knowledge--not sure which--in the end of her soon to be infamous speech, she managed to contradict herself and basically let the world know she thought it was absolutely okay to toke it up anytime you like as long as you intent was for medical or recreational reasons.
Here is what Miss Iowa 2013 had to say about the use of marijuana:
"I think that depends on the situation. I personally know people who have had to go to medical marijuana for their last resort for their healthcare. And I completely agree with that however I do not think it should be used for anything but recreational use and healthcare."
If you are confused...don't worry so was everyone else and it only took a few moments before Twitter started exploding with response. Take a look at a few of the gems found there.
Did anyone catch that Miss Iowa said that marijuana should only be used recreational?
Miss Iowa either, obviously doesn't know what recreational use of marijuana means or she smokes it herself.
Miss Iowa...what? It should be only used for recreational use and medical needs? Are there other uses?
Hey Miss Iowa, I don't think marijuana should be used for anything other than recreational & medical use either.
Ha-ha Miss Iowa is a stoner
Miss Iowa is definitely getting high right now ..."I do not think it should be used for anything but recreational use and health care
Shorter Miss Iowa: Do not use marijuana as a floor wax. Just say no, people.
Pretty sure Miss Iowa is yearning for a do over in her answer on Pot.
Yeah, I'd say by tomorrow morning Miss Iowa 2013 may be looking to do a redo on her statement on the TODAY show much like her erring predecessor Miss South Carolina did a few years back. In case you don't remember, here's the video of her infamous response on maps and American geography skills.
Enjoy, and while you're at it, toke one up for Miss Iowa representing on the Miss America 2013 Pageant. Whether you're terminally ill or just looking to have a little fun, there's probably no other way she wants you to celebrate her top 5 placement than smoking some medicinal or recreational marijuana.
