He says its safer than alcohol...
Chris Rock says that it is time for the US to legalize marijuana. Rock told Vanity Fair (via Contact Music) that he believes the country should follow suit with Colorado and Washington in legalizing the recreational drug, saying he believes it to be relatively harmless.
Rock said, "I'm all for the legalization of weed. I have two daughters, but we all know that alcohol is worse and legal. Seth Rogen is a productive member of society. Mel Gibson has a problem."
He also said that his outlook on his career has changed over time, saying, "It was more fun. First of all, you had three goals: to get good at comedy, to make money from comedy, and to get laid from comedy. What do we do now? Well, people seem to think we're good. We have money. We're married, so the whole working to get laid thing is over. Sad to say, but we work now to maintain our lifestyles, to not suck, and to avoid Celebrity Apprentice."
