Even Pat Robertson Says to Legalize Pot!

Hallelujah!  Pat Robertson recognizes that the drug war has failed.  Reported the New York Times:

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.”

Perhaps now some of the conservative politicians who seek his support will wise up as well.  Treat drug use as a health and moral issue, not a criminal law question.  America would then be both freer and healthier.
