Merle Haggard, who is outspoken about legalizing marijuana, came to the defense of his friend Willie Nelson, who was arrested for marijuana possession last month. "I think it's silly to put someone in jail for [marijuana possession]," the country legend said in a recent interview. Haggard also thinks that the legalization movement has been stalled by the government because it is a threat to the pharmaceutical industry. "I think it's a threat to the pharmaceutical industry that you can go to the garden to grow something that might keep you from having to use Lipitor," the Hagg said.
He does have a point there. I think there is something to his theory.
Are you pro legalization of marijuana?
