Pat Robertson wants to legalise pot, becomes ‘Hippie Hero’


This is a shift from preaching conservative family values. Evangelist Pat Robertson’s newest cause is the legalisation of marijuana. β€œI really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Robertson told The New York Times. β€œI’ve never used marijuana and I don’t intend to, but it’s just one of those things that I think: this war on drugs just hasn’t succeeded.” Robertson argues that legalizing marijuana is the best way to bring down U.S. incarceration rates. β€œI believe in working with the hearts of people, and not locking them up,” he said.
