Bit heavy for the Lounge, innit?
+1. You're either for the nanny state or against it.I give you this: Conservatives are way more entertaining than Democrats when they argue for big government.
I've been arguing marijuana legalization for years, and I guess my argument can be boiled down to one question:
What specific, unique properties does marijuana possess, that make it deserving of being illegal?
People make a lot of arguments about marijuana that can be easily applied to alcohol, tobacco, OTC and prescription medications, firearms and even fast food. However, those are all still legal (fast food probably not for long). I want to know what about marijuana, that is exclusive to marijuana, makes it so much worse than cigarettes, Tylenol PM, Jack Daniels or a triple bacon cheeseburger with gravy fries.
