Joe Rogan, 'The Green Room with Paul Provenza'With Tommy Chong sitting in 'The Green Room with Paul Provenza' (Thu., 11PM ET on Showtime), it was inevitable that the topic of drugs came out. The guys talked about their belief that marijuana is harmless, and the details of Chong getting busted for bongs, as opposed to actual drugs.

Joe Rogan started talking about the 'War on Drugs,' which he sees as a joke at this point, and representative of the colossal failure of government in general.

"The only way you're going to fix it is by influencing young people," he said. "Young people who are not going to be completely compromised by the system by the time they hear your message."

But then, the comedians started talking about how playing colleges has changed since the years Tommy Chong was doing it. Then, college was the place for counter-culture anti-establishment cutting edge comedy. Now, they get a list of topics that are forbidden.

They posit that the special interest groups and corporations are now financing collegiate research and the work of the professors there, that the kids are getting indoctrinated into this system so soon that there may not be a young, untarnished generation that can be reached anymore.
