Pat Robertson, one of the nation’s leading evangelical preachers, has come out in support of legalization of marijuana in DC, Maryland and Virginia.
Robertson took his pro-legalization message to the “700 Club,” the most popular show on his Christian Broadcasting Network. “I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Robertson preached to his flock.
Significantly, Robertson was there 40 years ago, supporting Richard Nixon, when he first launched the U.S. War on Drugs. His defection shows that support for legalization goes beyond the liberal left to encompass all segments of society and politics.
