Ron Paul is an American politician. In 2011, he said: "Why don’t we handle the drugs like we handle alcohol? Alcohol is a deadly drug. What about — the real deadly drugs are the prescription drugs. They kill a lot more people than the illegal drugs."[1] He and Barney Frank introduced legislation to legalize marijuana.[2][3]
