    Some laws prevent the liberty of those who are responsible. For one, I am opposed to restrictions to a safer alternatives e.g. alcohol and pain meds, namely cannabis. This is a plant that can and should be allowed to grow in one's own back yard. It would illuminate the need for the drug cartels to smuggle their supplies of marijuana into this country. I am opposed to coke, meth etc. of course!

    If a citizen in a free society wishes to drink alcohol, they can. They can drink as much as they want, despite the fact that according to Department of Justice research, 40% of all violent crimes involve alcohol. Prohibition failed, yet its being attempted again, this time focusing on drugs. There are already enough comprehensive laws which punish those who commit crimes.

    I think it’s a state by state issue . . . As far as medical marijuana, I would say that’s something we should really consider strongly because people are sick and it does have a huge impact. A lot of people who have said it’s had a huge impact on the pain and suffering they have to go through.

    We have more people in jail today than any other country . . . we have large numbers of lives that have been destroyed because of this war on drugs and because people have been caught smoking marijuana and so forth. I think we have got to end the war on drugs . . . I am not unfavorably disposed to the legalization of marijuana.

    I don’t support legalizing marijuana. If it were on the ballot in the state of Texas I would vote no. But I also believe that’s a legitimate question for the states . . . and the citizens of Colorado and Washington State have come to a different conclusion . . . I think it is appropriate for the federal government to recognize that the citizens of those states have made that decision.

    If you ever do drugs, then you destroy what you were made to be. Yes, [I’ve smoked marijuana]. I’m not all hung-up about marijuana. We don’t want to demonize people; I just don’t want to legalize drugs. When it comes to medical marijuana, if the experts ... say we need this for people with seizures, I’m for that.
