TLP Quick Hits: Pat Robertson Says Marijuana Use Should be Legal

Ok, so I agree with Pat Roberson on one thing.

We only need to look at Alcohol Prohibition to realize that regulating morality is a failed experiment, yet the War on Cannabis is now entering it's 75th year.

It's time to wake up America and put an end to this madness once and for all.

“I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Mr. Robertson said in an interview on Wednesday. “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.”

Mr. Robertson’s remarks echoed statements he made last week on “The 700 Club,” the signature program of his Christian Broadcasting Network, and other comments he made in 2010. While those earlier remarks were largely dismissed by his followers, Mr. Robertson has now apparently fully embraced the idea of legalizing marijuana, arguing that it is a way to bring down soaring rates of incarceration and reduce the social and financial costs.

“I believe in working with the hearts of people, and not locking them up,” he said.

Good for you Pat, my hope is that others see the light.
