Crazy Man Leads Opposition to Marijuana Legalization in California

When the opposition begins putting people like Bishop Ron Allen to argue against legalizing pot, you know they're in short supply of logic and right on their side.

Bishop Ron Allen has been one of the loudest opponents of Prop 19. As this interview shows, he's also a raving paranoid nutjob who knows next to nothing about drug policy:

SSDP's Aaron Houston does a great job infusing some sanity into the conversation, but Allen's wild ranting and bizarre closing remarks completely stole the show.

When our opposition begins putting people like this on stage, you start to get the feeling that it's just a matter of time before they get swept up in some grand fiasco of their own making. The leaders of the anti-gay movement keep getting caught in awesome gay situations, and I can only imagine what some of these anti-drug zealots are up to when they're not busy trying to scare the crap out of everyone.

Although, I suppose it would be pretty hard to top this.
