'700 Club's' Pat Robertson says pot should be legal

Pat Robertson supports legalizing marijuana

Here's something you probably never thought you would hear televangelist Pat Robertson say.

The long time host of the evangelical Christian program "The 700 Club" belives marijuana should be legalized and regulated like alcohol.

Robertson who says he's never smoked pot and is not encouraging people to do so, says the war on drugs has failed and is costing taxpayers billions of dollars.

And a recent Gallup poll shows half of America believes the same as Robertson.

When Gallup first polled Americans on the topic in 1969, only 12% supported legal pot.
