    Question Shock: Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson favors marijuana legalization

    His co-host added that the success of religious-run dormitories for drug and alcohol cessation therapy present an "opportunity" for faith-based communities to lead the way on drug law reforms.

    "We're locking up people that have taken a couple puffs of marijuana and next thing you know they've got 10 years with mandatory sentences," Robertson continued. "These judges just say, they throw up their hands and say nothing we can do with these mandatory sentences. We've got to take a look at what we're considering crimes and that's one of 'em.

    "I'm ... I'm not exactly for the use of drugs, don't get me wrong, but I just believe that criminalizing marijuana, criminalizing the possession of a few ounces of pot, that kinda thing it's just, it's costing us a fortune and it's ruining young people. Young people go into prisons, they go in as youths and come out as hardened criminals. That's not a good thing."

    Later it was discovered that black is now white.

    Pat Robertson has proven that he's a CC or Capitalist Christian. Like many others in America's Protestant oligarchy he's gotten rich by exploiting people in other countries(See: Pat Robertson, Liberia). It would not surprise me if he had a plantation somewhere in Jamaica with slaves ready to flood the market with marijuana the minute it is legalized.

    You really need help.

    Yes, that's the way you think.
