Pat Robertson: Legalize Weed!
I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol. I’ve never used marijuana and I don’t intend to, but it’s just one of those things that I think: this war on drugs just hasn’t succeeded.
Um, duh. Needless to say, lots of pro-pot groups are stoked that Robertson has spoken up about the war on drugs’ epic fail which has imprisoned thousands on personal use drug charges. Robertson said:
Prisons are being overcrowded with juvenile offenders having to do with drugs. And the penalties, the maximums, some of them could get 10 years for possession of a joint of marijuana. It makes no sense at all.
Then in a weird cognitive shift, Robertson explained that overpopulated jails are due in a large part to to a
liberal mindset to have an all-encompassing government.
Whoa Pat, dude, what have you been smoking?
