During his 81 years on this earth, Pat Robertson has said a lot of stupid things. He blamed hurricanes hitting Florida on gays visiting Disney World. He blamed the earthquake in Haiti on an alleged two-hundred-year-old pact with Satan. He suggested that someone should detonate a nuclear bomb at the State Department. But today, for reasons unknown, Robertson is actually making sense, calling for the legalization of marijuana.
“I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Robertson said in an interview with the New York Times. “If people can go into a liquor store and buy a bottle of alcohol and drink it at home legally, then why do we say that the use of this other substance is somehow criminal?”
Good question, Pat. I blame homosexuals.
Robertson went on to explain that while he feels the war on drugs has failed and is a waste of tax-payer money, he doesn’t support anyone actually using drugs and doesn’t use them himself, a fact that I find hard to believe considering he thinks gays are causing hurricanes. He must have been high as shit when he came up with that. (New York Times)
