Video: Pat Robertson Calls for Legalizing Marijuana

| by Michael Allen

'700 Club' host televangelist Pat Robertson told the New York Times on Wednesday that he believes marijuana should be legalized.

Robertson said: “I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol. I’ve never used marijuana and I don’t intend to, but it’s just one of those things that I think: this war on drugs just hasn’t succeeded.”

Last year, Robertson seemed to endorse deregulation, but a spokesman for the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) said that he “did not call for the decriminalization of marijuana” (video below).
