We see a shot of a hand resetting a clock showing POTUS's local time to that of Washington. Josh and Donna come wandering in and Donna's got a question: "Josh, is there anything to suggest that there are a significant number of people who want to smoke pot but don't because it's against the law?" Josh says there isn't. Donna asks, "Then why do you think if it were decriminalized there'd be a sudden stampede of people showing up to work stoned, dragging down the economy and clearing supermarket aisles of Pringles and Twinkies?" (I'd just like to note that there's been some conflation in this episode of the issues of legalization and decriminalization, and while I'm not a lawyer, and don't even play one on TV, I believe these are two separate issues with different, if overlapping, implications. I'm sure some lawyer-type can explain it in the forums using small words and visual aids.) Josh says, "That's not a reason to make it legal." Donna: "In a free society, you don't need a reason to make something legal, you need a reason to make something illegal." As the phone starts ringing, Josh says, "Donna, parents are keeping drugs away from their kids with a whip and a chair. It doesn't really help them out if we..." Donna answers the phone and Josh mumbles, "That's okay, it's just me talking..." He slurps on his drink. Donna hangs up and tells him that POTUS is back and wants to see Josh.
