Holy smokes! Did the 700 club just become the 420 club? After much debate and presumably a long heart-to-heart conversation with his unseen sidekick Jesus Pat Robertson decided to announce to the world that the war on drugs has failed.
Marijuana, announced Robertson, should be treated like "beverage alcohol" which have many marijuana advocates praising the minister while anti-drug organizations are attacking Pat Robertson's credibility, saying he has made several strange remarks in the past five years about prayer, tornadoes and homosexuals.
Robertson's remarks however strange command may be or actually very important. You see Robertson is a very high profile conservative and his statement may be indicative of wider shifts in viewpoints among conservatives on the marijuana issue.
If only he could have his viewpoint back in 1988 when he was running for president right?
