I really hope they don’t. I believe it’s a lie that marijuana is not harmful. Dr. Paul being a doctor should know better. Barney Frank is nothing but a little ugly worm who makes my skin crawl.
Going to a disco and staying out until 5 a.m. when you have to work the next day is likewise "harmful." Hey! Let's make that illegal, too!
Alcohol causes changes to the brain chemistry. 7-year-olds who drink two bottles of Jim Beam a day have a lower high school graduation rate... Hey, let's illegalize alcohol for everyone!
No one here is claiming that marijuana smoke is better for your lungs than fresh, pine-scented air. Rather, it is the recognition that the "War on (Certain) Drugs" has caused immensely greater harm than good, and squandered billions, while simultaneously encouraging the creation of a sprawling bureaucracy with para-military powers that tramples on our Constitutional Rights because - "It's for the Children, sniff!"
It is funny how these leftists demand no cigarette smoking and vilify it at every chance they get....yet they glorify marijuana when the smoke is more toxic to the lungs.
Marxism has no logic....it makes evil good good, evil....everything is relative. They don’t care about the “children”....they want addicts and dysfunctional people who need government to take care of them.
If we had no welfare state...then fine, have no laws against marijuana...BUT since we DO have government interference in all aspects of life we can’t legalize it because then they do not suffer the consequence for their actions.
It is like the welfare queen....we pay women to have babies out of wedlock so Voila!! we get lots of it.
We legalize drug use and have government subsidize the losers...and Voila...we will get a lot of the dysfunctional addicted behavior....and a lot of the college kids I talked to who smoked marijuana said it made them lazy and they would skip classes or work etc.
Wow—how far from the Horatio Algers type who formed Reagan’s worldview.
Now we have dysfunctional, lazy people forming the worldview of our future generation....Great!
Me too. Socialists love drug legalization. It creates dependence on government. I know. Ive witnessed it Europe. Ron Paul reminds me of cult leader though who is beyond accountability.
