I get really tired of Penn's rants, but they are usually really, really easy to shoot down as bullpoo. For such a smart guy, he can be really stupid.

Blaming Obama for the drug laws is plan dumb. Even if Obama had tried to dispense with the laws it wouldn't make a difference. He wouldn't have had any support from Congress and most of the drug laws are local, not federal.

If anything, Obama at least admitted he had used drugs. Bush hid the fact he had had a drug problem, and he literally crashed his car while stoned. It wasd his family's influence got him off.

madest: The difference is that Bush wasn't proud of his youthful indiscretions, Obama seems to flaunt them. As a general rule I don't like any politician. Most politicians are lawyers and it takes the ability to lie with a straight face to be good lawyer, something I despise.

Bush disclosed his drug use to be truthful. Obama disclosed his drug use in a book to make money and appear 'cool' to today's youth. If you thought Obama was going to legalize weed and voted for him on that 'Hope and Change' you were straight out lied too. There has been no 'Hope' and the 'Change' has been for the worse.

Our leaders shouldn't be scofflaws, hypocrites or 'cool' just for the sake of getting votes.
----------
George Bush also smoked weed and did coke.. So he too was a scofflaw and hypocrite that you supported and voted for twice...

"Bush did the same thing"

Bush, if you'll recall, bought votes. Literally.
Remember he promised, if elected, he would send everyone a $500 check. Well the stupid idiots fell for it and voted for him. True to his word he did send us all a check. Later everyone found out it was an advance on our tax returns and no one actually got anything they wouldn't have had anyway.

But it worked, so.... thereyago

ppl go to jail not for doing it but for holding it. hold an amount a little to large it can be seen as if you are selling and making illegal "tax free" profit which is very illegal

Penn's point was that Obama's drug use was being used to make him look 'cool', in his books, but in real life the consequences of such drug use is much harsher and definitely not 'cool'.

He also said that it's 'beyond hypocritical' for someone that has used drugs, and got away with it, to be the head of the federal government and locking away people in prison for the same crimes.

Our leaders shouldn't be scofflaws, hypocrites or 'cool' just for the sake of getting votes.

Too late.

The black marketeers are too powerful. You think the cartels are going to allow drugs to be legalized?

Too much money, too much credible threat of violence. No brave politicians. It's over.

I usually can't stand Penn but he's right on the money here. The fact that so many people go to jail for victim-less crimes is really messed up. Although I don't agree with Duckboy (I think weed should be legalized), decriminalization is the most logical first step towards legalization.

isn't the US prison system for profit, so that they need to put people in prison to support their industry? oh yeah, that is it.

Duckboy what you are advocating allows minors to obtain pot easier than alcohol and it fuels the black market. A lack of regulation means a lack of control.

I bet you all think that I'm talking about a fine worth thousands of dollars right?... If so, you guys are idiots.

I'm talking about fines that are no more harsh than a speeding ticket for repeat offenders.

@8bit: They can't afford a $150 dollar ticket but can afford recreational drugs? Then give up the drugs. It's not rocket science.

Yes the Netherlands can handle it. But to quote you, a million times "Uhmeerrrricuh". You think people in the US are dumb idiots now? Wait until they are under the influence.

I personally don't think most Americans can handle the responsiblities of drugs, including alcohol and tobacco.

What does this non-nice individual think? That any president can just not enforce the law because he disagrees with it? I mean, what the drat?

Victimless crimes should be ruled legal and the prisoners set free, their records expunged. It's ridiculous, who are they hurting??? I totally agree with Penn on this.

But what about those who can't afford it. I think it's a joke that we can advertise smoking and alcohol on TV but are against drugs, DESPITE the fact that tobacco and alcohol are drugs. It's stupid. Look at countries that have legal drugs Netherlands, they're fine.

But something that you can openly admit you did, and ppl dont think any less of you for it? That cant be a crime.


Did he inhale? Or was that the other President that also admitted to this 'crime'? I agree with you - nobody should be serving time for this 'offence'.

The question really is, how can it even be considered a crime when people like the president can admit to doing it on TV?
I mean, think about it for a second. What would happen if the president admitted to murder, and a little raping on TV? All hell would break lose. Those are actual crimes.
But something that you can openly admit you did, and ppl dont think any less of you for it? That cant be a crime.

@DuckBoy87

So, you're saying that people should be fined for doing something that affects themselves and themselves alone? Yeah.....makes sense.

I don't think marijuana should be legalized, but I also don't think that smoking it or possessing it should be a jail able offense.

A fine, sure.
And if they don't pay the fine then they can go to jail.
But a straight "you have pot, go to jail, do not collect $200" should not be in place.



So you'd be back to the situation where Obama and other rich people that could afford to would avoid incarceration, whilst ordinary chumps that couldn't afford the fine would be behind bars. Nice idea.

Penn is my hero. You can download all of his "video blogs" from his website, in audio format. They are about 45 minutes each.
