Former Clinton Cabinet Member Voices Support For Marijuana Legalization


Legalize marijuanaFormer United States Labor Secretary Robert Reich voiced his strong support for ending the criminal prohibition of cannabis during an online forum.

Reich was asked by an audience member, “If you could eliminate a single federal regulation and replace it with some other regulation (or nothing at all), what would it be and why?” He responded, “I’d start by legalizing marijuana.”

Reich made his comments last week on the popular website reddit.com.

Reich served as Secretary of Labor under former President Bill Clinton. He is presently a professor of public policy at the University of California at Berkeley.

    The current proposal before Congress, bill HR 2306, will allow states to decide how they will regulate marijuana. You can email your Congressperson and Senators at http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml to discuss HR 2306.
    And a big THANK YOU to the courageous, freedom loving legislators, governors, and countless others who are working so hard to bring this through! You’re doing a great patriotic service for all of America!

    Jesus said to do unto others as we would have them to do unto us. None of us would want our child thrown in jail with the sexual predators over marijuana. None of us would want to see an older family member’s home confiscated and sold by the police for growing a couple of marijuana plants for their aches and pains. It’s time to stop putting our own family members in jail over marijuana.
    If ordinary Americans could grow a little marijuana in their own back yards, it would be about as valuable as home-grown tomatoes. Let’s put the criminals out of business and get them out of our neighborhoods. Let’s let ordinary Americans grow a little marijuana in their own back yards.
