Barney Frank Supports Legalizing Heroin and Cocaine

WASHINGTON -- Former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) has not tried heroin. But he thinks it should be legal, along with a host of other drugs. ...

Frank has made this case before, arguing at various points that marijuana should be legalized. Frank told HuffPost that he isn't a pot smoker, despite his support for the drug's legalization. "I can't inhale," Frank said. "I have a bad sinus condition." But his husband does smoke, and Frank himself has tried "pot cookies" which didn't "have a huge effect on me," he said.

What wasn't clear was if Frank's openness to drug legalization ended with weed. It doesn't.
