Copycat England wants to legalize pot now, too12/10/2012
Marijuana could soon be getting the royal treatment in England, where politicians are calling for a drug commission to consider legalizing the banned substance. Hmmm, where could they have gotten that idea? Parliament members are ogling America's cutting-edge, blissed-out states of Washington and Colorado, where toking is now A-OK, and have paid visits to Portugal and Colombia to see what happens when getting baked isn’t considered a crime. Pressure to tackle the subject comes from big names like Virgin founder Richard Branson and comedian Russell Brand, who considers drug use (including his own laundry list of offenses) "more of [a] health matter than a criminal or judicial matter."
