Speaking about the criminal justice system on his "700 Club" television program, Robertson remarked that it was a "shocking statistic" that the United States has "the highest rate of incarceration of any nation on the face of the Earth." Then he said something few "law and order" conservatives – and especially Christian conservatives – would dare to say: "More and more prisons, more and more crime. It’s just shocking, especially this business about drug offenses. It’s time we stop locking up people for possession of marijuana. We just can’t do it anymore...You don’t lock ‘em up for booze unless they kill somebody on the highway."
