Marijuana legalization: Former president Jimmy Carter OK with legalizing pot
(Politico) Former President Jimmy Carter said he is in favor of legalizing marijuana during a public panel that CNN aired Tuesday.
CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux asked Carter whether he supported marijuana’s legalization during a forum hosted by The Captain Planet Foundation on Friday in Georgia.“I’m in favor of it. I think it’s OK,” Carter told Malveaux. “I don’t think it’s going to happen in Georgia yet, but I think we can watch and see what happens in the state of Washington for instance around Seattle and let the American government and let the American people see does it cause a serious problem or not.”
Carter said that decriminalizing drugs doesn’t necessarily mean more drug users.
“All drugs were decriminalized in Portugal a few years ago and the use of drugs has gone down dramatically and nobody has been put in prison,” Carter said.
