Michael Moore Casts Vote on TV for Legalization in Michigan


Leave it to Michael Moore to stage a televised vote-in.

The activist filmmaker pulled out his Michigan absentee ballot during an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Nov. 1, 2018, giving him an opportunity to vote to legalize cannabis in his home state in front of a televised national audience.

When filling out the ballot, Moore also voted for a number of Democratic candidates, including gubernatorial contender Gretchen Whitmer. She is one of several major party candidates for governors’ seats in the Nov. 6, 2018, elections who support marijuana legalization.

But Moore seemed especially excited to get to the cannabis question on the back of the ballot.

“Do you want to help me fill this one in?” he asked Meyers.

“Are you on the fence on this one?” the host asked.

“The band wanted to vote on this one,” Moore quipped, an apparent reference to an affinity for cannabis from the musically inclined.

Liberal-progressive activist filmmaker, shown at a Paris film festival in 2009, cast his ballot in front of the “Late Night with Seth Meyers” audience and viewership. Along with casting his absentee votes for Democratic candidates in his home state of Michigan, Moore also voted in favor of recreational marijuana legalization.

  1. Some lighthearted fun with the video, “women Don’t like us Michael, most of us aren’t as charming as you are. you Are fun and entertaining, thank you”

    • My theory all along, before Dain Bramage commented below, is that Michael Moore Is “Dain Bramage”. Gotta have a little fun, it is from a Seth Meyers show after all.

  2. Michael Moore lives in Flint, MI, and like everyone else there, has been exposed to lead in the drinking water, that being due to the malfeasance of Gov. Rick Snyder, and a Republican abuse of power (of course, “Republican abuse of power” is redundant, isn’t it?)
    There is no effective treatment for lead toxicity, as I understand. It is permanent, and there is no “safe” level of exposure — all exposure causes damage to human health.
    So, I say in all seriousness, and with the fullest respect for Mr. Moore, that it will be in his own best interest to have the best medicine, including cannabis, available as a first line of defense in the protection of his own health, not only as a pallative medical treatment, but as an all-around treatment for his general health, in all the ways that cannabis is known to do, as he deals with the effects of lead poisoning.
    Michael Moore is a true patriot. I salute him, and and I wish him well.
