Roseanne Barr on Drugs

Peace and Freedom Party nominee for President

 


Re-write drug laws to be sane and people based

Q: Legalization of marijuana is a subject you care very strongly about. On your presidential website, you mention re-writing the laws to be "sane and people based". What exactly does that mean and why is this issue so important to you?

A: The jury is NOT out, anymore; Listen, demonizing Weed is just plain bad policy. We're criminalizing our own people, wasting billions of dollars and eroding our freedom with the endless, destructive "War on drugs," but, specifically, the part focused on persecuting and prosecuting people who use Marijuana. We destroy our own credibility by allowing cigarettes and alcohol to be sold everywhere while hypocritically pretending we're all about protecting people. I could go on all day, so don't get me started. The facts are everywhere and they're incontrovertible. We've had twenty years of Presidents who smoked pot and it didn't stop them from becoming President.

End all Drug Wars; stop monopoly of subsidized prisons

The legalization of marijuana is the way to end all Drug Wars and stop the monopoly of the subsidized prison systems. Our government and corporations are getting paid every time someone goes to prison for non-violent crimes due to marijuana arrests. Drug laws need to be rewritten to make them sane and people based. We need to end the prohibition on marijuana and legalize it.
