go kinky!

As reported here, Kinky Friedman would legalize pot in Texas and clear all the non-violent pot users out of the prisons should he be elected governor.
Kinky Friedman says he favors legalizing marijuana to keep nonviolent users out of prison. If Texas elects him governor, he says, he'll try to get locked-up pot users released to make room for more violent criminals.

"I think that's long overdue," Friedman told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday. "I think everybody knows what (U.S. Sen.) John McCain said is right: We've pretty well lost the war on drugs doing it the way we're doing it. Drugs are more available and cheaper than ever before. What we're doing is not working."
I'm sure I'd disagree with him on a number of issues, but when a would-be governor of Texas speaks out against drug prohibition, you gotta give him some respect.
