WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens thinks the federal government should legalize marijuana.
The 94-year-old retired justice tells NPR that public opinion has changed on the issue.
Stevens also says that there isn't much distinction between marijuana and alcoholic beverages.
He says that the prohibition against alcohol in the early 20th century is generally thought not to have been worth the cost and that will be how marijuana is viewed in the future.
