Despite what some may think, marijuana reform is not a rallying cry for simply one side of the political spectrum.

In response to a comment from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on “Fox News Sunday” that marijuana use wasn’t worth throwing people in jail for, Bryan Fischer, the director of issues analysis for the socially conservative American Family Association, tweeted: “Sen. Paul doesn’t want [to] send folks to jail for marijuana beef. Fine. Make ’em pay a fine, like we do for speeding tickets.”

TV evangelist Pat Robinson has also spoken in favor of marijuana reform, publically endorsing ballot initiatives in Colorado and Washington state.

  1. I suppose it’s progress to “make ’em pay fine, like we do for speeding tickets”, but why should there be any punishment at all for using the least harmful substance? That question should be front and center of any discussion of marijuana legalization.

  2. Calm down- it wasn’t Rand who said that. Teh Director for the American Family Association. A very conservative think tank. Rand Paul is quite the people’s advocate.

  3. There are always misquotes and misunderstandings from opposition groups of what U.S. Senator Rand Paul was saying about big government and how they control you.
