Obama: 'Legalizing Drugs Is Not the Answer'

Barack Obama
Pres. Obama has smoked marijuana, but still opposes its legalization

In a speech in Guadalajara, Mexico on Friday, Pres. Obama restated his opinion that "legalizing drugs is not the answer. Instead, I believe in a comprehensive approach - not just law enforcement, but education, prevention and treatment. And we’re going to keep at it - because the lives of our children and the future of our nations depend on it."

This comes on the heels of Obama recently joking about his college marijuana use at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
