Zakaria: Incarceration nation – Global Public Square - CNN.com Blogs - "I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol," Mr. Robertson said in a recent interview. "I've never used marijuana and I don't intend to, but it's just one of those things that I think. This war on drugs just hasn't succeeded." The reason Robertson is for legalizing marijuana is that it has created a prison problem in America that is well beyond what most Americans imagine.

And the penalties - the maximums - some of them could get 10 years for possession of a joint of marijuana. It makes no sense at all." -- No other country comes even close to our rates of incarceration. We have 760 prisoners per 100,000 people. Most European countries have one seventh that number - Zakaria
