Perry says 'no' to legalizing pot


 By TREVOR EISCHEN |

Gov. Rick Perry  says Texas won't be legalizing marijuana anytime soon.

On CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, host Candy Crowley asked the Republican governor and Govs. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), Jay Nixon (D-Mo.) and Dannel Malloy (D-Conn.) about their views on legalizing marijuana in their states.

Perry was the first to answer with a quick "no."



While he doesn't support legalizing pot for recreational use, Perry says the way Texas has prosecuted marijuana cases has received compliments from President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

"What we've done in the state of Texas is we've started looking at adjusting the penalties of criminal use of marijuana," Perry said. "We've seen our prison populations go down."

The governors were in Washington over the weekend for the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

McCain says Putin should be 'nervous'

The violent uprising in Ukraine should make Russian President Vladimir Putin "nervous" about his own leadership in Russia and that a partition of Ukraine is "totally unacceptable,." Sen. John McCain said Sunday.

"They want to be western," the Arizona Republican said of the Ukrainian people. "They don't want to be eastern."

The senator said he had spoken with multiple Ukrainian opposition leaders, including former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who was released from prison last week following a vote in Ukraine's parliament. He said the anti-government leaders are "overjoyed" but that "there's a sobering reality" about how difficult it will be to repair the country and its economy.

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, an ally of Putin whose political support lies mainly in the eastern part of Ukraine, was voted out of office by the Ukrainian parliament and his whereabouts are still unknown.

"If I were Vladimir Putin, I would be little bit nervous," McCain said.
