Obama Suggests Marijuana Should Be Legal: Thank You, Mr. President!
As his days in office slowly come to an end, President Obama has spoke out to Rolling Stone Magazine about marijuana and suggested that it should be legal. To that I say, Thank you, Mr. President!
President Obama on the topic of marijuana said:
“I am not somebody who believes that legalization is a panacea. But I do believe that treating this as a public-health issue, the same way we do with cigarettes or alcohol, is the much smarter way to deal with it.”
This is what marijuana advocates have been saying all along. Regulate, tax and sell it in the same way as cigarettes or alcohol, it’s the right choice especially when it has been proven to be healthier than both of them.
