Rand Paul Calls Prison for Pot “A Terrible Crime”
Author: Monterey Bud  05/02/2018 - 22:00:00

“I think it’s a terrible crime to put people in jail for pot.”~ Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky)

On Friday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul stopped by to speak with the ladies of The View. After first describing the chaotic events of the past couple of months, the junior senator from the Bluegrass State addressed America’s mounting anger management issues and the racial disparity caused by our federal marijuana law.

Once Sen. Paul regaled Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, and Sunny Hostin with his harrowing story of being tackled by a neighbor and shot at by a stranger, Whoopi Goldberg asked the senator a rather poignant question: “Before we go, you feel like ah – marijuana should be legalized in the United States?”

Paul, a one-time Republican candidate to be President of the United States, commented on the matter during a 2015 debate.

“We say we like the 10th Amendment, until we start talking about [marijuana]. And I think the federal government has gone too far, I think that the war on drugs has had a racial outcome, and really has been something that has really damaged our inner cities.”
