Ron Paul Speaks Up for Medical Marijuana at UC Berkeley

As a congressman, Paul took his opposition to marijuana and drug prohibition a step farther than his son has so far. He supported a number of bills that would have removed the plant from its current status as a Schedule I substance under federal law, where it is considered alongside heroin and PCP. Because his history on the topic is so expansive, just take a look at the video to the left for a selection of his comments.

Ron Paul, who is not going to win the Republican presidential nomination but remains a draw to his passionate supporters, spoke at UC Berkeley last night before a crowd estimated somewhere north of 1,000. The Daily Cal has posted the entire speech, which was arranged by Students for Liberty and Youth, a UC Berkeley student organization.
