Last night during Bill Maher’s “New Rules” segment on Real Time, the host argued that Marijuana legalization is the new gay marriage. Saying “It is the next obvious civil rights issue that needs to fall.”
Positing that the movement of the nation’s views on marijuana have changed much like that of gay marriage. The polls on the prohibition of marijuana have continued to move in the direction of decriminalization if not outright legalization. The state of Colorado has already decided to legalize the herb.
As well, Maher tied the issue of excessive incarceration to that of the drug issue. He also made it clear that smoking weed won’t necessarily hold you back. Hey, you could even be president.
