Count this among the 10 things nobody ever
expected to see in their lifetimes:
700 Club founder Pat Robertson, one of the cornerstone figures of America's Christian right movement, has come out in favor of legalizing marijuana. Calling it getting "smart" on crime, Robertson aired a clip on a recent episode of his 700 Club television show that advocated the viewpoint of drug law reformers who run prison outreach ministries.
A narrator even claimed that religious prison outreach has "saved" millions in public funds by helping to reduce the number of prisoners who return shortly after being released.

Peter McWilliams was a #1 bestselling author and outspoken critic of the War on Drugs. He died at age 50 after a federal judge prohibited him from using medical marijuana.
McWilliams was found dead in the bathroom of his Los Angeles home on June 14, 2000. He had choked on his vomit -- a grimly ironic coda to his three-year battle against the federal government over his right to use marijuana to stay alive.

Implementing Pot Legalization in Colorad...

Last November, Coloradans and Washingtonians voted to legalize marijuana. For those fed up with marijuana prohibition, the moment was an important victory and, perhaps, an indicator that marijuana prohibition nationally is coming to an end.
For reformers in Colorado and Washington, however, the work is just beginning. Implementating the new laws will not be easy, and there are lots of big questions that will need to be answered. Will adult tourists visiting Colorado and Washington be allowed to buy pot? Will adults be allowed to smoke pot in coffee shops or private clubs? Will adults who legaliy smoke pot be eligible for federal grants? How will the federal government respond?
In February, Reason TV's Paul Feine, David Bienenstock, Harris Kenny and some friends of Reason gathered in Reason's LA studio to learn more about the challenge of implementing the new pot laws. David Bienenstock is an editor at High Times magazine and the author of the recently published Legalized It!: Inside Colorado and Washington State's Historic Votes to End Marijuana Prohibition. Harris Kenny is a Reason Foundation policy analyst and a member of Colorado's Amendment 64 implementation task force.

In this excerpt, Sam draws the connection between religiosity and victimless crime. I'm guessing the first victimless crime was blasphemy.
