Pat Robertson says marijuana should be legalized

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson says marijuana should be treated like alcohol because the government’s war on drugs has failed.

The outspoken evangelical Christian says he has never smoked marijuana, and he is not encouraging it. But he says the war on drugs is costing taxpayers billions of dollars and people should not be sent to prison for marijuana possession.
