Jimmy Carter: ‘I think it’s OK’ to legalize marijuana

Former President Jimmy Carter said that he favored legalizing marijuana during a panel discussion broadcast on CNN Tuesday. “I’m in favor of it. I think it’s OK,” Carter said at the forum, which was taped Friday. “I don’t think it’s going to happen in Georgia yet, but I think we can watch and see what happens in the state of Washington, for instance around Seattle, and let the American government and let the American people see does it cause a serious problem or not.”
