Venezuela to fine networks that air ‘Family Guy’
CARACAS, Venezuela – Venezuelan authorities plan to impose fines on cable television companies that refuse to stop airing the animated television series “Family Guy.”
Justice Minister Tareck El Aissami says the program should be pulled from the airwaves because it promotes the use of marijuana.
He said Thursday that cable networks that broadcast “Family Guy” would be fined by Venezuela’s telecommunications regulator if they refuse to dump the program.

You don’t? Maestro, take it away…
