Default Carlos Santana Wants Obama To Legalize Pot

http://www.spinner.com/2009/04/03/sa...egalize-pot%2F

Well, it's not quite 4/20, but why not? Carlos Santana is calling for President Obama to make pot legal. During a junket to promote his upcoming residency at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the legendary guitarist asked the president to give it serious consideration.

"Legalize marijuana and take all that money and invest it in teachers and in education," Santana told the Huffington Post. "You will see a transformation in America."

Santana said making weed legal is "really way overdue, like the prohibition with the alcohol and stuff like that," adding, "I really believe that as soon as we legalize and decriminalize marijuana we can actually afford a really good governor who won't keep taking money away from education and from teachers and send him back to Hollywood where he can do 'D' movies and we can get an 'A' governor." Santana was, of course, referring to former movie action hero and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Santana's remarks were in response to a question about legalization that were raised to Obama during his online town hall on March 26. At the time Obama fielded a question about whether legalization of the illicit drug would help pull the nation out of recession. Obama said he didn't think it was good economic policy, and also joked: "I don't know what this says about the online audience."

I agree. I've yet to see anything that proves that pot is any more dangerous than drinking alocohol, although I've been repeatedly told it is by White Collar conservatives.

Thoughts?

It makes a lot of sense to legalize grass. It doesn't cause as many deaths that alcohol does, it could help in hurting the mexican drug cartels, clear out some of the overcrowded prisons and could help at least a little bit in a struggling economy.

The thing is though it's not socially acceptable and it's been demonized so much over the years that I don't think it will be legalized anytime soon.

Not only is pot far FAR less dangerous than alcohol, I would argue it's less dangerous than most over the counter drugs that if you take a few too many can kill you...Including asprin. No one has ever, EVER overdosed on pot.

i really dont understand how it isnt legal right now, unlike alcohol and tobacco, weed has been proven to have some medical use. its a win win really, you can tax weed and reduce the number of non violent offenders in prison. you can create jobs too...
