Santana Legalize Pot

During his virtual town hall meeting the other day, President Barack Obama seemed to get more than the usual number of questions pertaining to legalizing pot; some feel that the tax revenue generated by legalizing marijuana would help the government offset current expenditures. Now, Obama has a well known supporter of his, Carlos Santana, striving for that option.

Carlos Santana, said in an interview this week that Obama should legalize marijuana, take all of that money and put it into teachers and education for a “transformation” in America. Isn’t that the standard argument for liberals? They look for an issue they want changed, and say it’s for the kids. In this case legalized pot for the children; I’m thinking maybe Carlos Santana has been doing a bit too much research on this issue. From the Associated Press:

“I really believe that as soon as we legalize and decriminalize marijuana we can actually afford a really good governor who won’t keep taking money away from education and from teachers and send him back to Hollywood where he can do ‘D’ movies and we can get an ‘A’ governor,” referring to former movie action hero and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Obama has recently said that he doesn’t support the legalization of marijuana; but one can only wonder how much pressure Obama and other liberal politicians can withstand on this matter. The argument has always been there with prohibition as an example of what could possibly happen if marijuana were legalized. I’m sure Carlos Santana doesn’t have a problem getting what he needs, legalized or not. Of course I’m talking about education.

My guess is that the issue of legalized marijuana is too much of a hot button issue for most politicians to ever seriously consider; but then again with the current crop of liberals in Washington all bets are off. Carlos Santana may eventually get his wish for the legalization of marijuana.
