Children's Book on Pot gets O'Reilly Fired Up

This clip from 'The O'Reilly Factor' pairs two very unlikely children's authors. O'Reilly, author of the "The O'Reilly Factor for Kids" talks with Ricardo Cortes, author of "It's Just a Plant," an informative book about marijuana. While Cortes argues that the book in no way promotes pot, O'Reilly says that the book is not just informative; it is a "sympathetic look" at marijuana. O'Reilly reads an excerpt from the book, where a marijuana farmer tells a child that all sorts of people smoke marijuana, even presidents! O'Reilly offers several nuggets of wise information in this clip, including "Intoxication for children is bad," "'Just say no' doesn't always work," and "I'm a boring guy."
