President Obama has come to the defense of pot smokers, saying that marijuana is no more dangerous than cigarettes or alcohol, and that people arrested for smoking marijuana should not be jailed, particularly poor kids who lack legal defense.
“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” Obama said in an interview with David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker magazine.
its actually less harmful than both of those put together and has not caused the amount of deaths as they have either. Nice logic and stats obama.
He could issue a Presidential pardon for all those in prison for non-violent drug offences. Is that right?
