Gov. David Paterson Talks About Legalizing Marijuana


Rolling "Stoned" interviewed Gov. David Paterson from New York and asked him about the legalization of marijuana. The Governor said, "Marijuana always appeared to be a substance for which great punishment was meted out for very little demonstrated problem with the actual substance. Our society is odd because we have this contempt for marijuana smoking, meanwhile people have access to pharmaceutical products that are just destroying them. The same people who rail about marijuana use are draped over a bar and then get in the car and kill people. I wouldn’t suggest driving under the influence of marijuana either. I’m just saying that we’ve always seemed to have an uneven policy."
