They want regulation of marijuana to be up to the states. My reaction?
- [rank, hideous hypocrisy that is courting a lightning strike from its sheer, brazen effrontery] No-one under the age of 21 should be allowed to smoke marijuana. Period. Never, ever, ever, ever. [/rank, hideous hypocrisy that is courting a lightning strike from its sheer, brazen effrontery]*
- It is exceedingly unlikely that this is ever going to pass, given that darn few politicians on both sides of the aisle wish to appear weak on what the libertarians call The War on Some Drugs.
- I can think of several hundred things that I’d rather see the federal government do than go after pot smokers. That list includes ‘naming post offices.’
- It’d be so worth it, from a vicious partisan point of view, to get this bill passed by Congress – just to hear the screams of outrage on campuses across the nation when President Obama vetoed it.
And… that’s pretty much it.
*Really, it’s amazing how I still haven’t been struck by lightning. I wrote that last night.
