    You cannot argue the philosophy behind legalizing booze and reefer is people will consume it so make it legal. So, taking that to the next step why legalize 100% of all stimulants, depressants mood boosters, crack, etc.? The logic is the same. It parallels making poverty against the law or out lawing not sex but the sex drive itself. Until we adopts the "shoot on site" policy for drug use it will never, never, never change.

    I didn't say religion IS the problem, but it supports the problem.

    Religion is nothing...it's just a bunch of clubs set up by people who like to feel superior and like power. And their members are those that like to be told what to do...it make them feel safer and cozier.

    Fortunately, those members (at least in the West) are slowly 'seeing the light' and leaving these clubs...but FAR too slowly, I am afraid.

    I really haven't had much of a problem with Christie until now. Bridgegate didn't even bug me much.

    I can only think this is positioning, trying to drum up support amongst his base and folks who still buy into Reefer Madness.

    It's not going to work, and whoever's idea it was gave Christie bad advice.

    So far, the only person in the GOP roster who doesn't seem to be a total drug warrior is Marco Rubio. However, I think that's cause he's got family that's done hard time because of it. Correction: There is also Paul, but he doesn't stand a chance in hell of getting the nomination.

    Throw in religion...which is a bastion for social stagnation...and humanity is probably doomed to centuries more (at least) of staggering ignorance (assuming it survives that long).
    How is religion "a bastion for social stagnation"? Please be specific.

    Jesus warned against legalism.
