No, I don't think legalizing marijuana would be good for the economy. Because essentially what you would have running around is a bunch of pot heads, who would start committing a lot of crimes because they're high all the time. I don't think very much would get done, if pot was legalized because people would be driving high, going to work high, driving school buses while they are under the influence. And then where would this leave us? Not a good idea at all. It should only be used in a controlled environment for medicinal purposes.

His answer prompted applause from the audience. www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/03/26/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry4894639.shtml
