    Politics Sarah Palin: Smoking Pot Is No Big Deal

    (June 18) -- Sarah Palin says recreational pot smoking is "relatively speaking a minimal problem" in America.

    In an otherwise uneventful appearance on the Fox Business Network with Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, Palin said that while she doesn't believe marijuana should be legalized, the country has bigger fish to fry.

    I imagine her husband smokes it occasionally (if not habitually), and that her two or three oldest children do, that she herself no doubt has in the past but probably doesn't currently, and that many of her acquaintances do.

    Almost nobody thinks pot is a big deal. I'm not sure why it isn't legal, except that the government must be somehow making more money off its illegality than they would if they legalized and taxed it.

    I agree with her although I think it should be legalized. I mean really pot isn't that big of a deal.

    Yep. My friend's boyfriend actually has his own weed plants. Although in Boston you can get in trouble, but you would have to either have a ton of it or be got selling it.

    In Austin/Travis County, it's just a ticket if it's under 4 oz.

    Well, I believe the article said that the "ticket" thing hadn't been adopted anywhere else in Texas yet, but the article was written in 2007, so maybe the larger metropolitan areas have adopted it since then.
    I'm sure they have the same problems with jail overcrowding that Austin does.

    Yeah - I definitely mirror her statement, here:

    "I think we need to prioritize our law enforcement efforts," she said. "If somebody's gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems we have in society."
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
