Comments

"I'm not averse to legalization for medical purposes. I am worried about gateway drugs, even marijuana and part of my background when I worked for the Senate for 10 years was international drug control...I don't think the public supports it (legalization) and I suppose we should have a healthy discussion about it, but I'm wary of the legalization of what are now illicit drugs. And maybe it's because of my generation. I'm from the Sixties, and a lot of my generation experimented and got hooked with drugs and I saw a lot of damage."
