Pat Robertson Endorses Decriminalization of Pot
Thursday, 23 Dec 2010

Christian-conservative leader Pat Robertson is the newest supporter of the decriminalization of marijuana in America and is endorsing faith-based rehabilitation houses over mandatory sentences for minor drug offenses. Robertson, a one-time Republican presidential candidate, said on his 700 Club television show earlier this week that he’s not exactly for the use of drugs, but believes criminalizing marijuana ruins young lives.

“Young people go into prisons; they go in as youths and come out as hardened criminals,” Robertson said. “That’s not a good thing. 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.”
