Huffington Post: Sean Bielet supports legalization
There is at least one area where Bielat and Frank will have little disagreement. "I'm a conservative, but I would say on drug issues I tend toward libertarian," he says, arguing that the war on drugs has been a total failure and that policy should focus on reducing the harm associated with drugs.
It makes no sense, he says, that coffee and alcohol are legal when other drugs aren't. Frank backs the legalization of marijuana and generally supports allowing individuals the freedom to do whatever they want, as long as it doesn't hurt others. "Barney's not bad on those issues," offers Bielat, saying he won't make it part of his campaign. "I don't need to beat my head against that particular wall."
