Senator John McCain may be changing his position on marijuana, with a recent declaration that it might just be a good idea to legalize it during a town hall meeting in Arizona.

Arizona Daily Star columnist Tim Steller tweeted that when asked about marijuana last Thursday, McCain said “maybe we should legalize.”

McCain: “Maybe we should legalize. We’re certainly moving that way as far as marijuana is concerned. I respect the will of the people.”

McCain’s daughter, Meghan, came out in favor of pot legalization in June 2012 after admitting that she had once smoked a joint.

The notorious warhawk’s position will probably change after he realizes that there isn’t a pill on Earth magical enough to relieve his immense disappointment over the recent announcement that the U.S. will most likely not be going to war with Syria.
