So now he’s a libertarian? What the he11 is wrong with my elected officials in Texas? Who paid him to change his stance?
Hold on now. See my tagline. I HATE libertarians. And ask anybody; I’m as big a pro-WOD drug warrior as they come.
But there is a difference between legalization and decriminalization.
Rick Perry had his faults. But this ain’t one of them.
Decriminalization basically means that pot possession gets you a fine instead of a prison sentence. I never smoke it, but I don’t want my tax dollars going to feeding druggies in the clink. In the end of the day while bad for you, pot is not nearly as bad as alcohol or tobacco. That said, I can’t say I really care about the issue.
I wouldn’t vote for a “drug warrior” any more than I would vote for someone warring against the 2nd amendment. You authoritarian goons and lovers of big government drug enforcement are about to get snuffed out, anyway. It’s happening in state after state. Maybe you better start thinking about some other way you can keep your greasy paws in other people’s business, because you’re obviously losing your grip on this issue - thank God.
