Carlos Santana Says Legalize Marijuana to Obama...


President Barack Obama brushed off a question about whether the legalization of marijuana would help pull the nation of a recession during his March 26 online town hall. But guitar great Carlos Santana says he wishes that the President would seriously consider it.

In an interview this week, Santana said:

"Legalize marijuana and take all that money and invest it in teachers and in education. You will see a transformation in America."

He added that legalizing pot is "really way overdue, like the prohibition with the alcohol and stuff like that."

"I really believe that as soon as we legalize and decriminalize marijuana we can actually afford a really good governor who won't keep taking money away from education and from teachers and send him back to Hollywood where he can do 'D' movies and we can get an 'A' governor," continued Santana, referring to former movie star and current California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Santana made the comments while promoting his upcoming residency in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where his show will debut May 27 and run through 2010.
