A Big High Five to Pat Robertson

Welcome to the club buddy; we’ve been waiting for ya. What club is that?  The club of individuals who have recognized that throwing people into cages for smoking a dried plant is not the best decision.

That’s right — Pat Robertson, Mr. Christian Coalition, has recently come out in favor of legalizing marjiuana.  I’ll give you a minute to pick your jaw up from your keyboard.

Pat states,

We’re locking up people that have taken a couple puffs of marijuana and next thing you know they’ve got 10 years with mandatory sentences,” Robertson continued. “These judges just say, they throw up their hands and say nothing we can do with these mandatory sentences. We’ve got to take a look at what we’re considering crimes and that’s one of ’em.

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.

Now doesn’t it feel so much better you’ve gotten that off your chest?  Hopefully more of your followers begin to pick up the message.

UPDATE:  Mr. Robertson has since stated that he is not actually for decriminalizing marijuana, despite have clearly appeared to say so.
