    and I've never smoked the stuff and really don't give a shit about the issue inherently, but legalizing marijuana will have a positive effect on a lot of low income people, in particular a lot of people who would otherwise be going to jail if we don't do it. It's not my first priority, which is reducing economic inequality, but it is a step in the direction of fighting injustice.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
