#rsrh War On Some Drugs Update: Democratic governor ready to veto GOP medical pot bill.

No, really.

This week the Republican-controlled New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a medical marijuana bill by a lopsided vote of 236 to 96, one day after Gov. John Lynch, a Democrat, threatened to veto the legislation. Last month the state Senate approved the bill, which would let patients with “debilitating medical conditions” or their “designated caregivers” grow and possess up to six ounces at a time, by a vote of 13 to 11, with all five Democrats and eight Republicans in favor.

Vai Instapundit.  Hey, you know who should be expressing an opinion on this?  Barack Obama, that’s who.  Preferably, on a New Hampshire college campus…

PS: Yes, of course it’s de facto legalization of pot.  Now ask me if I give a tinker’s dam, as long as you’re: a, not smoking it in front of my kids; b, not selling it to anybody’s kids; or c, not operating heavy machinery while under the influence.  And before you tell me that I’m being fringe for that attitude, well, take it up with the New Hampshire legislature.  They’re the ones passing this legislation; and I seem to recall that the GOP picked up a few seats there in the last election…

    You left out d) not rendering yourself unemployable and demanding I support you.

    You know that in liberal circles you would be the equivalent of a unicorn. Conservative, but supportive of gay marriage and open to pot legalization.

  • Moe_Lane says:

    Earlgrey: that’s because liberalism is the opposite of libertarianism, not conservatism. Which is why ‘liberaltarian’ is a self-contained oxymoron. 🙂

    I concur with Rob. and Mr. “Tea” (wha-wha, bad pun).
    Though if I were to picture Moe as a mythical beast, I want to see him as a hippogriff.
