George Soros is back. The leftist billionaire wrote a column this week calling for the legalization of marijuana. In the Wall Street Journal's op-ed pages, Mr. Soros supports California's Proposition 19, the ballot initiative that would legalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana and its domestic cultivation.
Proposition 19 is a major step toward Mr. Soros' ultimate goal: the legalization of almost all hard drugs - including cocaine and heroin. This is a cause Mr. Soros has pushed - and bankrolled - for decades. It would take America closer to his vision of a European-style permissive social democracy.
[Ed. Note that Soros steeples his hands. Body language expert, Tonya Reiman, explains this gesture.]
