California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger attempted to clarify his stance on marijuana legalization in California, but left me wondering what he really thinks.
Appearing on CNN, Schwarzenegger was asked to answer a question from the popular website Digg: “What is your stance on the legalization, cultivation and regulation of marijuana in the state of California?”
“I like the law that we have in place, and I don’t believe in legalizing marijuana,” Arnie said – then added, “but I’m always open for the debate.”
Then he said, “it could very well go in initiative one day, where they ask the voters directly … and if the voters make that decision that’s fine.” Of course, I’m sure Arnold is quite aware of a recent California field poll showing that a majority of state voters express support for legalizing and taxing marijuana.
Hilariously, he added, “I think that it is very important for us not to make certain decisions just because they would bring in some extra money … because it would produce, as they say, 1.3 or 1.4 billion dollars in extra revenues.”
Ha ha! Sounds like he is really against the idea[/sarcasm]. With critics like these, who needs supporters?
