In a recent interview on Air America Radio, Ron Paul took a strong stand in support of the Constitution and State Sovereignty – by stating that laws and regulations of Marijuana should be on a state level.
“If California wants to legalize it, let ’em legalize it,” Paul told host Richard Greene on Air America’s “Hollywood CLOUT!” program.
He said that 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.”
