    "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."

    Crazy or not, he's just what we need to get the Christians to stop saying, "MARIJUANA IS EVIL." That majority is large, and their support could help us end these retarded, wasteful, and useless laws. More power to him, because he did make a good point.

    Pat Buchanan is in favor of legalization too, and has been for a pretty long time, but that hasn't swayed the political right wing at large to accept it as an option. Robertson will be seen as a lone kook on this, other Christian leaders will not follow suit.

    You're probably right, but hopefully it will pave the way to more people openly supporting it.

    I hope that it is legalized. Not because I smoke, but because I'm sick of hearing stoners complaining about it.

    Governments are idiots for not legalising and controlling the distribution of weed, or any other drug for that matter. The amount of revenue that it would bring in would be immense, and the money could be put towards better uses than organised crime.

    I almost thought it said "Rob Pattenson". Anyways, I'm fine with the legalization of drugs, they should let people do whatever the hell they want. If they legalize it, they can stop it from being overused however they see fit.
