Sarah Palin: Smoking Pot

Sarah Palin says recreational pot smoking is "relatively speaking a minimal problem" in America.

In an otherwise uneventful appearance on the Fox Business Network with Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, Palin said that while she doesn't believe marijuana should be legalized, the country has bigger fish to fry.

 

"I think we need to prioritize our law enforcement efforts," she said. "If somebody's gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems we have in society."

Allen St. Pierre, the director of NORML, which supports liberalizing drug laws, said Palin's position on pot is perfectly in line with her identity as a politician.

"If you're a populist as she appears to be, it's maybe not that surprising," he told AOL News in a phone interview today.

But has the former Republican vice presidential candidate ever lit up a joint?

You betcha.

    She's absolutely right, for once.Kind of like shooting at the broad side of a barn and finally hitting it.

    Eh, she acts more like she is on crack instead of weed. I'm mildly surprised that she isn't pushing for the legalization of meth. LOL
