(Newser) – While speaking out in favor of decriminalizing marijuana on CNN yesterday, Rep. Barney Frank admitting to having tried pot, although not smoking it. "I did have a brownie once," said Frank. "It made me sleepy." For most of the interview, Frank framed it as a "personal freedom" issue, saying decriminalizing would free up resources at the state level. "Ron [Paul] and I are in great agreement on this," noted Frank.
