The Governator Doesn’t Believe In Legalizing Pot (wink wink)

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.”

Hmmm.

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?

    AHHHH-nold is my favorite. He seemed to definitely enjoy his life. He also seems to have secured a place in almost, if not everyone’s hearts. Personally, I believe that he is on the leading edge of the whole legalization/decriminalization movement. I also think he can/could secure a place in the history books if he would just say what he REALLY thinks about the situation. I also believe if his state decriminalized marijuana, we would see one of two things. Either the rest of the states slowly start to follow, or everyone who wants to not get raped for enjoying the herb would just pick up and move to cali, boosting the hell out of the state, and just destroying the rest of the country. Who knows. Guess only time will tell.
