In the 1980s Newt wrote a letter to the AMA advocating the legalization of marijuana. Later he tells the Wall Street Journal that he smoked pot when he was younger, but then morality changed and now it's wrong to do so, which I guess is why he wants to execute people for possessing it, apparently in accordance with Shari'a law.
So either morality changes dramatically over time and there are no objective moral truths, or Newt Gingrich is inconstant. Guess where the smart money's going on that one!
