  1. I don’t necessarily agree that he said he was in favor of the legalization of marijuana. If I’m hearing him correctly, he is talking about the laws associated with marijuana possession and the jail time associated with it, the cost of that process on our government, etc. Perhaps there are ways to reduce those sentences where jail time is limited to more egregious and/or repeat offenders. I actually didn’t disagree with a single thing he said in that clip.

    I haven’t gone on to read the article about this, I just watched the clip. But I actually agree with the things he is saying here. I’m not necessarily in favor of full blown legalization, though I haven’t researched it enough to have a highly informed opinion of the topic.
