Ron Paul weighs in on Marjuana Debate



Texas Rep. Ron Paul has no problem with states' choosing to legalize marijuana--and he spoke out on the issue at great length on an Air America radio interview.

"If California wants to legalize it, let 'em legalize it," Paul told host Richard Greene on Air America's "Hollywood CLOUT!" program.

The Lake Jackson Republican, a libertarian maverick who sought the 2008 GOP presidential nomination, said that while he is "very conservative in my habits," he believes that the U.S. Constitution gives the fifty states the right to legalize hemp production or marijuana. He said the issue was a matter of "personal liberty" but added that drug users should not be entitled to government-funded treatment if they abuse legalized drugs.

"If drugs are legal and people misuse them, then they do it at their own risk," he said.

Bottom line, said Paul: "I do trust individuals to make their own decisions."

During the 18-minute segment, Paul also discussed former President George W. Bush and the state of the Republican Party

Personally, I couldn't agree more with what he said.
