Sarah Palin Wants Police To Leave Stoners Alone

Whodathunkit: The Thrilla from Wasilla, Mrs. USA, the grizzliest mama of them all is A-OK with folks getting stoned in the privacy of their own homes. “If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm,” former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said recently on FOX News, the fuzz should just leave them be.

The folks at the Marijuana Policy Project, America’s largest weed legalization lobby, are happy to hear it. But they’d like to see Palin cash that check with some action.

“If Sarah Palin recognizes that marijuana is a ‘minimal problem’ and that law enforcement has greater priorities,” the MPP’s Mike Meno wrote in a statement to the press, “she should get off the fence and join the growing ranks of libertarian-minded Republicans, including Rep. Ron Paul and former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, who have called for an end to the outdated and failed policies of marijuana prohibition.”

Meno even takes a swipe at Palin’s caveat — that legalizing weed would harm the kiddies: “Palin says she opposes making marijuana legal because of the message it would send to young people, but our current policies ensure that young people have better access to marijuana than nearly anyone else. Unlike the licensed merchants who sell tobacco and alcohol, drug dealers do not check IDs.”

They sure don’t!
