Sex, Drugs and Beans!

Richard was in rare form during this July 12, 2002 report on CNN's American Morning...

RICHARD QUEST:: , CNN CORRESPONDENT:
Jack, I have sex, drugs and beans. What better combination for a Friday afternoon to get you going.


Let's start with drugs. Look, the British government has decided to reclassify, or some say declassify, cannabis basically from a class B to a class C drug. Now, what this means is that in the future, being in possession of a spliff, or being in possession of a bit of marijuana will get you a seizure -- I mean, they'll seize the drugs. Well, you got what I mean. And...


CAFFERTY: Do you use that stuff, Richard?


QUEST: Well, wait, you -- I'll show you the best drug in the world before we are through. Forget this...


CAFFERTY: Answer my question.


QUEST:: Forget this sort of stuff. I'll show you the real thing. Anyway, needless to say, people say all of the arguments that it's going to lead to harder drugs. But now if you sell it, you could go to prison for 10 years, but if you use it, you'll just get a warning, and the police officer might ask to borrow some off of you.
