In an interview with EW
I’m happy, but it’s not over at all. If anything right now it’s in a worse place, because it’s completely legal for some people and completely illegal in other places for other people, and it’s almost at the most hypocritical point it’s ever been in in America right now. Like when the full-on war on drugs was happening, at least they were fully entrenched in their own bulls—, you know? But now there’s this acknowledgment that it’s not bad and it’s good business and that it reduces crime when it’s legal, but they still are putting a lot of not-white people in jail for it in a lot of states.

Look, I’ve been very clear about my belief that we should try to discourage substance abuse. And I am not somebody who believes that [marijuana] legalization is a panacea. But I do believe that treating this as a public-health issue, the same way we do with cigarettes or alcohol, is the much smarter way to deal with it.
In a video on his Youtube Channel, jokingly telling people to vote for him
I can do a better job than damn Obama. [...] Vote for me! I'll try to legalize pot! [...] We need to support our military with everything we got. Without our military, we're nothing. [...] And then you got Mitt Romney. He only cares about Republicans, he don't care about the poor people.
