    drug-decriminalization is opposed by Conservatives.

    yes, for the most part, those who want to maintain & increase the Nanny-state...are Conservatives.
    this is clearly a progressive policy

    Not really, because it falls under the conservatives mantra of "THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!!".

    Which is why we had FCC for so long able to "censor" television from the poor children who might see inappropriate things because their parents are too f*****g lazy to actually change the channel.

    LOL, keep telling yourself that. No, liberals are the ones trying to explode the size and scale of government.

    And yes, let's decriminalize drugs so we can hire more cannibalism agents in the Miami police department.

    which says more about the people doing the reelecting than it does about the elected officials.

    It's so ridiculous that it makes you laugh (so long as you don't live in NYC).

    So let me get this straight -
    • I can't buy a large coffee or tea that is sweetened - I have to buy it unsweetened and walk over to the condiments table and put the sugar in myself.
    • You may no longer buy a 20oz medium soda with free refills. Instead, you'll be forced to buy a 16oz small with free refills. That restriction alone could curb the obesity epidemic - I just know it!
    • Now wait just a minute! You mean I'll no longer be able to enjoy a two liter bottle of Coke with my lunch? Haha! Fools! I'll just stuff a six-pack into my lunch box and drink that instead! Muhahaha!
    • Diet soda is perfectly fine - of course, people who consume diet soda get just as fat as people who drink the real thing - but, if these regulations had to make sense, they'd never have been proposed!
    • 70% fruit juice is okay, but fruit juice with sugar is not - uhh, when was the last time you saw sugar free juice? You DO know that fruit juice has more sugar and calories than Coke? Right? Right? Bueller?
    • What do you mean you want a venti unsweet latte? Do you realize there's a whole cup of milk in that drink you fat pig? That's enough to fill a small glass!

    It just blows me away that there are people fighting for their right to leglly ingest cocaine, heroin, LSD, crystal meth, and crack.

    Can you imagine a college campus if all that was openly legal?
