It’s a touchy subject, to be sure…
Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday that he’s for the decriminalization of marijuana use — not legalization, but the softening of punishment for marijuana users in the border state.
Perry made the comment during an international panel on drug legalization while speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
His spokesman confirmed that Perry is staunchly opposed to legalization of marijuana because of medical issues, but is committed to policies to lower the punishment for its use in order to keep smokers out of jail.
