Warren says The Rock would be in her ‘dream blunt rotation’

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) “dream blunt rotation” consists only of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, according to a recent interview.

“Pod Save America” host Jon Favreau asked the Massachusetts Democrat to choose four people out of a list he provided to join her in a “dream blunt rotation,” which he defined as “a group of people you’d hypothetically like to smoke weed with because they’d be a really fun time.”

“All I’m really telling you, this has nothing to do with weed,” Warren jokingly responded. “It’s who you think is fun … these are people you’d go get pedicures with, this what you’re telling me.”

Favreau then went on to list President Biden, Vice President Harris, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) as possible members of a hypothetical marijuana smoking session before getting to Johnson — the actor and former professional wrestler.

At the mention of Johnson, Warren said, “Oh, ‘The Rock!’ Oh, I’m stopping there.” She said she would just choose him “four times.”

When Favreau noted he also had Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), rapper Snoop Dogg, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and pop star Taylor Swift on the list, Warren stuck with Johnson.

“I’m still with The Rock,” she said.

Warren has not been shy about her love for Johnson in the past. She said in 2019 that she would welcome a presidential bid by Johnson, who was floating the possibility at the time for 2020 but ultimately decided not to run.

“Who doesn’t like The Rock?” Warren told Entertainment Weekly at the time. “And I have to say, who doesn’t love The Rock’s wardrobe choices, don’t they just knock you out? Those vests and the pink shirts. … Oh man, it is eye candy.”

In 2018, she tweeted a photo of a script of the television show “Ballers” that she keeps on her desk and was signed by Johnson, who she said reminds her to “stay ballin.” A year before that, Johnson said he “can’t wait” to meet Warren.

Warren also has pushed for the federal legalization of marijuana in supporting the SAFE Banking Act — which her office said would “create a safe harbor from prosecution, asset forfeiture, or other liability for financial institutions that serve cannabis businesses.”

“I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass this bill, but it cannot be the end of our work on marijuana policy,” she said during a committee hearing last year. “That’s because, as long as marijuana remains criminalized federally, we’re not fully fixing the problem. If people can still get busted for purchasing marijuana, many banks will find it too risky to serve legal cannabis businesses – no matter whether we tell them it’s technically okay.”
