A conservative radio host for an anti-gay group suggested punishing marijuana use with the equivalent of a speeding ticket on Sunday.
Bryan Fischer, the director of issues analysis for the American Family Association (labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group), was responding to a comment from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on "Fox News Sunday" that marijuana use wasn't worth throwing people in jail for. Taking to Twitter, Fischer agreed.
Sen. Paul doesn't want send folks to jail for marijuana beef. Fine. Make 'em pay a fine, like we do for speeding tickets.
