  •  And it is a gross canard... (3+ / 0-)

    ...to assume that all pot smokers are hippies.  Or, for that matter, that all hippies are pot smokers.  Plenty of people have an interest in reforming drug law, and it's not just so that they can do bong hits with impunity.

    The "war on marijuana" is a superb example of a stupid and misguided policy that has continued for decades, propelled entirely by venal and punitive motives.  If questions relating to this are coming up on the site, then it's not something to be appalled by...it's a good sign.

    I am encouraged by any motion in the direction of a government that is responsive to the needs of its citizens, and that is responsive in an intelligent way.  Ending repressive marijuana laws would be a fine way for the government to show that it can do something intelligently.  As, for example, we just did in Massachusetts.

    Freedom isn't "on the march." Freedom dances.
