Wait, what did Glenn say on radio this morning?!

This morning on radio, Glenn, Pat, and Stu were discussing a case of a woman who was held outside her house while police awaited a search warrant, all because her son defended the use of marijuana. Glenn has been a long time libertarian leaning conservative, but has consistently shied away from arguments such as the legalization of hard core drugs.

During today's discussion, Glenn seemed to be reconsidering his stance on the legalization of marijuana. What was the reason behind Glenn's reconsideration? Glenn brought up how the legalization of the drug would end police officers from using it as a "go to" reason to search your car, or hold someone outside of their house while police officers obtained a search warrant. Glenn said, "All they have to say is, I thought I smelled it. If your windows are closed, they can't say that. If your windows are open, all they can say is, I swear to you, I thought I smelled dope. As soon as they say, I thought I smelled marijuana, they can rifle through your car. They can throw you up against the hood of the car. They can do all of it."

Both Pat and Stu were a bit shocked by Glenn's reconsideration on this topic. Pat strongly disagreed with Glenn, saying the true issue is "not whether marijuana is legal. I think the problem is the oppressive agency of CPS or DCF." While Glenn did agree with Pat, it does raise some questions. Could the legalization of marijuana change or elminiate some of the police overreach we are constantly seeing?

Rough Transcript Below:

STU: So did the kid say, look, I think it's safe. My mom used it.

PAT: It doesn't really say.

GLENN: It doesn't matter! It doesn't matter.

PAT: He just defended marijuana.

GLENN: He's using his first amendment to speak out and the fricking spies at the school decides my kid is in trouble because they're with that person. Oh, my gosh.

STU: Especially when -- in a situation where you're encouraging the child to make his best arguments in favor of a mythical argument. You're requiring him to be part of.

GLENN: Let's say, it's an antidrug presentation. Let's just say he was sitting in the bleachers and he was like, pot is dope! Let's just say he's saying that.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: You still don't call the Department of Children and Families.

STU: Even if he said pot is dope, my mom has some at home. Does that allow -- even at that point --

GLENN: No. Here's what happens. You call the mom. And say, hey, mom, your mom son was screaming pot's dope and mom smokes it all the time. And you have an adult conversation. You have an actual human being to human being conversation. And then if you're like, you know what, I think this lady is a drug lord. Then you call.

PAT: It's pretty bad. Because CPS or DCF or whatever they call it in Kansas has almost unlimited power. Once they're involved, there's almost nothing you can do.

JEFFY: We're seeing that everywhere.

PAT: You're almost powerless against them.

GLENN: I'm about to go all Libertarian.

STU: You're about to go all Libertarian up in here?

GLENN: What's up, my cracker?

I'm about to go all Libertarian. I'm about to cross the rubicon on this. Legalize marijuana. Legalize it.

PAT: Yeah, I'm not there yet.

GLENN: You will be. You will be.

PAT: No, I'm not. I won't ever be there.

STU: This is a firsty for you.

PAT: You will die. You will be --

GLENN: The way to stop this is legalize it.

STU: Well, they would do it with the next drug.

GLENN: Oh, come on. Stop it. Stop it. People drink liquor over in Italy. At four years old, you're drinking a glass of wine. And the alcoholism rates are nothing like ours.

STU: I think you're misunderstanding what I'm saying is going to stop. What I'm saying is there will still be these situations where police officers do these -- I don't think it solves all this, as you said. But I think it probably cuts down on it quite a bit. Right?

It might encourage other things.

PAT: I think the problem here is not whether marijuana is legal. I think the problem is the oppressive agency of CPS or DCF.

GLENN: I agree with that.

PAT: And some police agencies that get out of control and become all authoritarian on you for no apparent reason.

GLENN: But do you know why when you're approached at a -- you know, at a blockade, why they say don't open your car window? Talk to the police officer from -- behind the glass. Do you know why? We've talked about it --

PAT: Because they can smell.

GLENN: They're sampling the air. We know they're sampling the air. Okay?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: But the other reason is because all they have to say is, I thought I smelled it. If your windows are closed, they can't say that. If your windows are open, all they can say is, I swear to you, I thought I smelled dope. As soon as they say, I thought I smelled marijuana, they can rifle through your car. They can throw you up against the hood of the car. They can do all of it.

PAT: Well, I don't have anything wrong in my car. There's nothing going on. I don't care if they go through my car. That's the attitude --

GLENN: Thank you, Lindsey Graham, for dropping by.

PAT: That is the attitude. I don't care. Go ahead. What are you doing wrong in your car that you care if they go through it.

GLENN: Go ahead. Let them access my phone camera. What do I care? So what they're watching me these really icky disgusting porno tapes that I would be making unbeknownst to me.

STU: Hold on. I think we need to focus here for a moment. Because what's happened here is a major -- I would say a major national development. I would say it's a very big newsworthy event if that's what you're doing. If Glenn Beck is coming out on national radio saying he's now in favor of marijuana legalization for recreational use. That is, I would say, a news story. Is that what's happening right now?

GLENN: You're making me decide?

STU: Well, I thought we should. If you throw it out like this, we'll get everybody speculating on what you supposedly believe.

GLENN: I think I am. I think I am.

PAT: I think you might want to reconsider. And then re, re, reconsider your reconsideration.

GLENN: I'd like you to reconsider.

PAT: I've considered it. I'm done.

GLENN: And I double down on your reconsideration. I challenge your consideration.

PAT: I don't think that's the answer. I don't think legalization of marijuana is the answer here.

GLENN: Well, I don't think the time that is wasted on mari-fricking-juana, man.

STU: Well, it's certainly not a good reason to make it legal, to solve this situation or situations like it. There's a much larger issue going on here obviously. It's not just police officers doing things that are wrong. I mean, there's much more to the drug trade.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
