Lawrence O'Donnell: Maybe Obama will legalize drugs in his second term

MSNBC’s host of The Last Word, Lawrence O’Donnell, foresaw a change in America’s drug policy in Barack Obama’s second term on his “rewrite” segment on Monday night. O’Donnell identified a growing ideological overlap between members of both the political right and left in America and said that “possibly ending the war on drugs [is] the 204th reason to vote for President Obama on November 6th.”

“Tonight, a President tries to rewrite a trillion dollar failed program that has produced murder and mayhem here and abroad for over forty years,” O’Donnell began. O’Donnell showed images of comedian Bill Maher and conservative columnist George Will and said when these two ideologically opposed individuals “agree on something, it’s time to listen to at least one of them.”
