I’m not saying pot is a bad thing. I know plenty of people who should be smoking pot. I’m just not one of those people. I don’t think it would be the best drug for me. What am I going to do, start doing drugs at my age? It’s a little late. I’m a mother of two. It’s probably not the best idea for me to start getting into it now.
I was in college, it was my first year of college when I got the show, so I’ve been kinda’ partying a lot and drinking a lot and I’ve never been stoned and when I got the show I got really serious… So I kinda stop drinking, cold turkey so I had never been stoned until… It’s something that happened with Mila and Ashton…
I’m questioning it. We’re trying to get a lot of money for health and education and I’m wondering… You look at these gangs, and I look back at Prohibition. When we didn’t allow alcohol, what did we have? We had gangs. We had big gangs. It’s something that needs to be discussed a little more. It’s an economic issue and a violence issue.
The War on Drugs has failed, but it’s worse than that. It is actively harming our society. Violent crime is thriving in the shadows to which the drug trade has been consigned. People who genuinely need help can’t get it. Neither can people who need medical marijuana to treat terrible diseases. We are spending billions, filling up our prisons with non-violent offenders and sacrificing our liberties.
