Santana Calls For Legalisation Of Marijuana

Guitar legend CARLOS SANTANA is urging U.S. president BARACK OBAMA to legalise the use of marijuana.
The rock great is adamant that making cannabis legal would boost America's flagging economy and create jobs.
He says, "Legalise marijuana and take all that money and invest it in teachers and in education. You will see a transformation in America."
And Santana has also taken a swipe at California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger - insisting a change in the country's drug laws would help remove the former movie star from his powerful political position.
He adds, "I really believe that as soon as we legalise and decriminalise marijuana we can actually afford a really good governor who won't keep taking money away from education and from teachers and send him back to Hollywood where he can do 'D' movies and we can get an 'A' governor."
