Famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is pretty known in the scientific world and is up there in knowledge with the likes of Stephen Hawking.
This week Tyson said something that confirms how he feels about marijuana.
He said, “There’s no reason for [marijuana] to ever have been made illegal.”
It was when Tom Angell of the pro-legalization group Marijuana Majority submitted a question asking if Tyson agreed with Carl Sagan, another astrophysicist, about marijuana being legalized.
“If you really analyze it,” Tyson said, “relative to other things that are legal, there’s no reason for it to ever have been made illegal in the system of laws.”
“That is extremely rational, which I expect from you, and you’re absolutely right,” agreed the host Chuck Nice.
“Alcohol is legal,” Tyson added, “and it can mess you up way more than smoking a few J’s.”
