Delaine Eastin on Drugs
Supports legalization, but would tax more
We tried making marijuana illegal, and that hasn't worked so well. I just don't think it makes sense for us to be thuggish about something that is not intrinsically evil. I think the initiative could have been written more strongly.
I probably would have taxed the product more, I would have put the money into mental health programs and done something that moved the needle on some of the problems that can come out of either alcoholism or drug addiction.
