"California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday called on politicians to be honest about legalizing marijuana, claiming many lawmakers and officials secretly opposed the drug’s outlaw status. 'I am sick and tired of politicians saying one thing in private and saying another in public,' he said on HuffPost Live. 'Love me or hate me, I can’t participate in that. I didn’t on gay marriage, and I watched as so many politicians ... said I’m with you on gay marriage, and then years went by and they were still arguing for second-class citizenship.' Newsom claimed the same was true of the war on drugs, which he described as an 'abject failure.'" (03/12/13)
