If you don't want the government telling people they must make healthy choices, and prohibiting what they can put in their body, why do people support the War on Drugs?
If you don't like first ladies supporting programs that mandate healthy choices and prohibit unhealthy consumption, why do people support "Just Say No"?
It's just too simple.
Marijuana is surprisingly safe, and some of the great minds of our time have used it. One of my favorites is the brilliant astronomer Carl Sagan. Plenty of normal minds in our time use it too. I personally do not, but I understand that it's pretty benign compared to alcohol or fried foods.
Each drug is a different story, with it's own effects and health risks, lumping them all together is ignorant.
Unhealthy food is proven to cause health risks, including heart disease which is one of the main killers of Americans.
If this is an issue of health, then your argument doesn't hold up.
I don't use pot. I like beer with my dinner sometimes plus happy hour on Friday after work with some friends. I am well aware though that alcohol abuse carries more health risks than marijuana use.
However, lets think about your logic here, if someone opposing the war on drugs, or having the bare minimum of knowledge about drug abuse makes them a pothead, then I suppose your opposition to this healthy food initiative makes you a greasy disgusting fatass glutton?
Learn some self control you obese monster. I'm sure a sick elephant or something will appreciate the organ donations after you eat yourself to a heart attack, but think about your family.
The War on Drugs is just an information campaign? If you grow marijuana in your backyard the government isn't going to mail you an information pamphlet. There's a reason the prison population has exploded in the last few decades, making us the #1 prison nation in the entire world: its the war on drugs.
How anyone can suggest the War on Drugs isn't fought with force is beyond me.
Try making the greasiest, saltiest, most unhealthy food item you can come up with in your kitchen and eating it. Hell take pictures of it and mail it to your local police station. If any government official comes to arrest you, I'll eat my shoe.
If you try growing cannabis in your own backyard....different story.
