It never fails to amaze; more and more, hovering under the umbrella of the big tent theory, partisanship dictates ideological coalitions corrupting the marginally moral even more-so. (The marginally moral? In case you don’t recognize that term, it refers to Democrats.)
You’ve heard the argument “the drug war has failed.”
As if they could know, … and denying how long laws kept them from trying pot, …. the proponents of marijuana legalization, claim that prohibition has failed.
Across the nation, in each subsequent state, they mechanically repeat, “enforcement of current laws and the drug war doesn’t reduce using” and therefore, it should be repealed. If it’s not failed, then why bother to repeal it?
Even more importantly though, ….. blind to their poor logic, they’re also proposing that laws against rape and homicide should be thrown out because they manifestly don’t prevent further offenses! Are you willing to accept that? How ignorant are potheads?
Willfully ignoring that sanctions suppress harmful behaviors, irrational users, will say anything to attain their getting loaded, using w/o facing being jailed, is all they want.
Unscrupulous doctors have turned their practices into prescription / recommendation mills, allowing anyone with an imagined, contrived, or real ache / pain to purchase pot legally, as long as it allows them to meet their bottom line.
Instead of examining documented statistics or any of the over 20,000 credible studies, the public ignores them, and allows this corrupt cabal to send the wrong message to our youth (that pot is medicinal) continuing the downward spiral of America’s society as they roll out an endless number of depressed victims who will believe this drug is part of a cure – all because they want to believe.
State by state, these legalizers seek legislation-by-anecdote, as they have for decades now, and basically, with all the other pressures to deal with now, who cares? They only want their “beloved high” and just like other addicts, they don’t care what they have to say, … who they have to deceive, to obtain it, no matter the harm it does to American society, as …. just as long as the harm is to ….. someone else’s children ….. even yours!
