I don’t often agree with Pat Robertson, but he is certainly right on marijuana:
“I’m … I’m not exactly for the use of drugs, don’t get me wrong, but I just believe that criminalizing marijuana, criminalizing the possession of a few ounces of pot, that kinda thing it’s just, it’s costing us a fortune and it’s ruining young people. Young people go into prisons, they go in as youths and come out as hardened criminals. That’s not a good thing.”
Unfortunately he walked back his words after this as his initial words were true. I hope that Democratic politicians do not want to be to the right of Robertson on this issue and back decriminalization of marijuana.
