A prime example of societal elite* (*masonic-fraternal order) rot
Everytime I've heard Pat Robertson mention Marijaunna, it's in a derogatory manner as if the government position was correct, and reflects throughout his 'Christian Briadcasting Network'. Some examples:

"It gives people the personal freedom they deserve," said one proponent of legalizing marijuana. "It also stimulates the economy which I really feel we could use in America right now, especially in California."
If the initiative passes, it would allow the drug to be sold in store and taxed, just like cigarettes.
But some officials say the revenue projections are overstated.
"The supporters of Prop 19, of course, advance some wildly over-inflated tax estimates," California Assemblyman Chuck DeVore said. "What they seem to forget is that cannabus grows naturally in North America. If it gets too high - (people) will just grow their own and the state won't get any tax money to speak of."
At the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, Calif., supporters of family values joined Advocates for Faith and Freedom during a fundraising event to push back the liberal agenda on marijuana.
"I've got four kids. I'm really concerned about what this is going to mean to our future generations believing that marijuana is just like another cigarette," said Robert Tyler, general counsel for the group.
Meanwhile, people like Lambert are hoping and praying California won't learn the hard way like the state of Alaska, who legalized marijuana in the 1980s. The Last Frontier State reversed its decision in 1990 when pot use among teens doubled. "I'm passionate about it because I used it for several years," Lambert said. "I would be like the rest of these people who are strung out on pot for so many years."
We're seeing very casual treatments of that on shows that are very popular with young viewers including "Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, American Dad," Melissa Henson, a PTC spokesperson said. "All of which are animated programs and some of the highest rated programs among viewers as young as two to 11 and also very popular with teenagers 12-17 who are extremely impressionable at that age."
Historically we've seen marijuana use on TV portrayed negatively, such as in the context of an arrest or a precursor to another crime. But not anymore.
"If teens see attractive characters using pot recreationally with no consequences they come to view that as not only okay behavior, but even normal, acceptable, mainstream behavior," Henson said.
While pot smoking on TV is on the rise, cigarette smoking has decreased, purportedly because of the health risks of kids imitating what they see on TV.
CBN acts as if its oblivious to the reality that cigarettes have killed some 100 million people during the last century and is estimated to take some 1 billion this century (WHO figures), while MJ which is one of the least toxic sustances known is something to be feared as an alternative to cigarettes or alcohol.
Such is a strange attitude for a 'Christian',
King James Version- Genesis 1:29
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Yet it's par for the course for a political status quo of fraternal order minions.
