Politics makes strange bedfellows. When I interviewed tea party icon Former Sheriff Richard Mack earlier this year he also came out in favor of legalization. It surprised me because when he was sheriff he worked with the DEA and was a tough-on-crime sheriff and teaches at BYU - a rather religious institution. He told me it was just a weed and if we can't control leafy spurge how could we justify spending money on it. I thought it was an interesting perspective.
