Marijuana has been a hot topic this year. First, it was decriminalized in Connecticut, and then just last week Congressmen Barney Frank and Ron Paul announced they would introduce a measure to legalize the drug. During a taping of Face the State, I asked Larson if supports that measure.
JL: “I think that legalizing marijuana is only a matter of time for our country”
JL: “I do I think when you look at what is happening with our prisons and the number of people in there and why they are there in respect to drugs, people need to wake up…..Parts of Barney’s bill go a little too far for me, but I think it is a matter of time, Dennis…….I think reasonable minds can come to some sort of compromise on this”
Larson also talks about Libya, President Obama, redistricting, a massive Hartford project, and Michele Bachmann. Read about the Hartford story here: http://dennishouse.wordpress.com/2011/07/01/larsons-big-hartford-idea/
