I'd be lying if I said I've ever watched the Miss America. But this one was apparently more funny than usual.

Miss Iowa gave quite an answer when designer Bradley Bayou, one of the judges, asked: "Marijuana is by far the most frequently used illegal drug in America. But now voters in two states have supported legalization for recreational use. Is this the right direction for our country?"

Miss Iowa Mariah Cary's (no, not that one) response was: "I think that depends on the situation, and I personally know people who have had to go to medical marijuana for their last resort for their health care. And I completely agree with that. However, I do not think it should be used for anything but recreational use in health care."

And some of the ones who decided to make singing their talent shouldn't have. Ahem, Miss Washington.

Zap2It has a good wrap up of last night's highlights.

Oh, and New York ultimately won bragging rights this year (with a woman originally from Alabama).
