Pat Robertson: Legalize marijuana and treat it like alcohol

"I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol," the 81-year-old Robertson said Wednesday. "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."

"It's completely out of control," he continued. "Prisons are being overcrowded with juvenile offenders having to do with drugs. And the penalties, the maximums, some of them could get 10 years for possession of a joint of marijuana. It makes no sense at all."
