Eric Roberts on Marijuana: Legalize It!

by at . Comments

One year after actor Eric Roberts completed a stint in Celebrity Rehab for marijuana "dependency," he's pushing for its legalization, which will never happen.

Eric, who made news last fall for calling Kate Gosselin a child abuser, says if alcohol is legal, weed should be, given the infallible logic that "Alcohol has destroyed whole civilizations whereas pot has only made a few hippies happy."

Yep. That's all it's ever done. You heard it here first.

Roberts adds that, "Pot remains illegal because no one has figured out how to make it profitable for the government yet ... it's political, not protective."

Back before he sought treatment last year, Eric's wife Eliza explained how the actor "quit drugs and alcohol in 1995" but still had an "interest in weed."

"He uses marijuana as a medication. He has a prescription ... however, a dependency is a dependency and he doesn't want to be dependent on it."

Either way ... should we legalize it?
