If we become the new Mexico, it is because we continue to keep it illegal. Drugs being illegal fuel crime because criminals who sell drugs really don't care about refraining from violence to reach their goals.
The reason marijuana is illegal is the money. For profit prisons need a steady supply of those arrested for marijuana related convictions, including selling. Even of small amounts. Drug companies don't want competition. Alcohol companies don't want competition. Prison guard organizations give money to oppose legalization. I wouldn't be that surprised if foreign drug lords gave money also, because their profits would drop big time if legalization happened throughout the U.S.
So he didn't show the people wiho answered the majority of the questions, it seems. Mr. Watters once again engages in journalism to make a political point. In this case make fun of marijuana users and those advocate its' legalization. Such as now a majority of Americans. The fact is if you take any random group of Americans, such as a bakery convention, an airplane convention or anything else, quite a few would have trouble answering those questions. The fact is with marijuana being illegal in most of the U.S., it makes it very lucrative for foreign drug lords to sell drugs for profits. Cut out the drug lords, allow the supply to come from non-violent growers and the violence from the drug wars goes away.

You do know calling others politically correct, isn't an actual argument for anything?

The question might be anti-Israel but it isn't anti-semetic. Would a question about terrorism in Japan be anti-Shinto? A question about terrorism in India be anti-Hindu? Nothing in the question suggests anti-semitism. Yes, those who set off the bomb might be anti-semetic, but nothing logically follows from the question. But hey, why is logic important, anyway?
Also, there would be death threats against the makers of the scopes and demands that "sharia law" are being imposed on us.
They do get high remarks but I found it concerning that while engaged in a house in Watertown, they continued to do searches of people removed from a house, who clearly didn't fit, in the least, the picture of those two men who committed the bombing. What, are they trying to get lucky and do a marijuana bust on the side?
Some of these statements are sexiest, but not all. SOme of these statements are just listed because the person criticized is a woman. Is criticism of a woman now sexiest? Or is it only conservative and Republican women? Because liberal or Democratic women in Townhall are surely attacked every day.
The fact is the minimum wage hasn't kept pace for inflation. It was much higher adusted for inflation in 1960. If adulsted for inflation, the minimum wage would be almost $11 an hour today. The average MW employer makes a very good profit off their MW worker. Or, is this author going to state that MW employers are less efficient then the MW employers of 1960? Even though productivvity, including in service jobs, have gone up.

BS, a sizable number of illegal guns are from gun shows. DO you think they are that stupid not to buy in places where they aren't checked? Talk about living in a fantasy world.
