Millions of Americans Turn Out to See the World’s Most Prominent Opponent to Marijuana Legalization- Pope Francis

By September 25, 2015Uncategorized

Amid the headlines highlighting the Pope’s stances on an array of hot button political issues like climate change, immigration, poverty, the death penalty and capitalism, we would like to highlight one of his positions that is perhaps less well-known –images

“Attempts, however limited, to legalize so-called ‘recreational drugs,’ are not only highly questionable from a legislative standpoint, but they fail to produce the desired effects.   – Pope Francis

In his address to the  International Drug Enforcement Conference in Rome held in June of 2014, Pope Francis could not have been any clearer. He emphasized his opposition to legalization saying,“Let me state this in the clearest terms possible: the problem of drug use is not solved with drugs!”
