Skip to comments.Pat Robertson Backs Legalizing Marijuana
Posted on 03/08/2012 8:30:25 AM PST by AnTiw1
Of the many roles Pat Robertson has assumed over his five-decade-long career as an evangelical leader - including presidential candidate and provocative voice of the right wing - his newest guise may perhaps surprise his followers the most: marijuana legalization advocate.
"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."

Gotta luv libertarians, no one on the world but them...
And pot is illegal. Those kids would be burnouts whether it was legalized or not.
not necessarily...but when someone tells me i'm 2b zotted for thread content or non-obscene info on my contact page, i want a second opinion...out of line?
Wow! The loon’s actually making sense!
You are already subsidizing “drug enforcement” efforts worldwide, incarceration, etc. - well, if you pay taxes. Either way, we pay.
The homicidal drug gangs thank you for your remarks.
Oh, and f*ck you too.
That’s my point.
Walk proudly. I think your should get rid of anyone who favors legalizing drugs. The purer the site the better.
Relax New stuff. I don’t want you to get the zot. Even if you are a retread.
Some day - if I feel like it - I’ll tell you the story of how - a few weeks ago - I was instrumental in getting another naive newbie like you UNZOTTED.
So if you do get the zot - I’ll come to your aid also.
(JR’s better half)
You are priceless, ya know that?
Dude. I was gonna call your attention to the fact that you can’t get away with a vulgar insult someone like that. Then I scrolled up, and I was like...
Goes to show. We never really read the replies, or someone never bothered to hit report abuse on the newbie.
You really should update yourself on the pro-life agenda.
Of course I support overturning Roe v. Wade. As a start. But to leave a matter of life and death up to the states is absurd.
The US must enact a Personhood Amendment. Equal rights to the born and the unborn.
Fair enough. In that case, we agree completely (please don't go jumping off a bridge for agreeing with a libertarian). I do give you credit for respecting the Constitution, despite our big differences on the danger or lack thereof regarding weed.
You were convinced that he was a liberal because he pointed out Santorum and Newt’s flaws? You are so full of yourself.
I know you hate liberals, you say it a lot. Does hating the right people make you socially conservative? Is that your platform?
I dont really care how much work you put in here, that doesnt bolster your argument, just tries to make you look like some sort of hero.
And it is pretty clear you fear other ideas, because you put effort into zotting people who have different ones.
But my original point was that it doesnt surprise me that someone who wants the government to control people’s lives also takes joy in banning different opinions on a website.
Interesting you use a logical fallacy to try and prove some point about logic.
How come cops, teachers and those in Congress are not randomly drug tested? How come those who perform the drug testing are not randomly drug tested?
I've noticed over the years, certain types live for that and seem to really get off doing that.
The first two can be answered with one word - unions.
thats sweet but going homo worked with your daddy
not with me ;^)
