It must be Presidential Election Time: Televangelist Pat Roberson is at it again!



This time it is on the “Legalization of Marijuana.” Televangelist Pat Robertson, 81, wants everyone to eat, drink and smoke in peace. Can you pass the pipe, I mean the peace? Please!

Robertson made a comment on the Christian Broadcasting Network that he became sort of a hero of the hippie culture, when he said that we ought to decriminalize the possession of marijuana.

He believes that too many young people wind up in prison and are turned into hard-core criminals just because they had a small amount of controlled substance for personal use. “The whole thing is crazy” says Robertson.

He insists that the laws need to be changed. “We cannot allow this to continue. It’s sapping our vitality. Think of this great land of freedom. We have the highest rate of incarceration of any nation on the face of the Earth. That’s a shocking statistic.”

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 is so adamant about the legalization of marijuana, you have to wonder if someone in his immediate family were caught sending up smoke signals.

Robertson goes on to say that “We need to take another look at what we’re considering as crimes and that’s one of them.”
