Senator Rand Paul Speaks Out Against Mandatory Sentences for Marijuana

Conservative Senator Rand Paul joined the growing, vocal opposition to mandatory imprisonment for certain drug offenses. In a recent interview, he pointed out that our last two presidents could have faced incarceration for their youthful indiscretions, and said that he doesn’t want people going to jail and having their lives ruined for making a mistake. He’s not going as far as his father, Ron Paul, who has advocated legalization of drugs generally. Rand Paul is not putting a position that far out there, but certainly seems to have a common sense attitude about marijuana.
