    I personally think most drugs should be illegal, esp the stronger ones. After doing daycare for years I have seen the repercussions of people's private recreation. Tobacco and weed differ in how they affect the person's level of awareness.
    More precisely, the Constitution does not grant the federal government the authority to regulate "substances".

    Period.

    The state governments can be as asinine as they like, and often are, but the Constitution forbids the federal government authority in this arena.

    There's this thing, dunno if you've heard of it, which is called individual liberty that people have a right to in this country. Your authoritarian stance on marijuana is anti-American and anti-liberty. How about instead of worrying so much about what I smoke or drink, you concentrate on your own life and just leave me the hell alone. I'm tired of nosy, busy-bodies like yourself who think they have some kind of moral obligation to save me or guide my life decisions.

    I neither need nor want your input, so get out of my face and mind your own business.
    Well said.

    We also have a thing called freedom of speech. You have a right to say anything you like as long as it does not put anybody else in harm's way.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    So much progress has been made recently related to cannabis that I'm having a little trouble keeping up-to-date with my news. This was a good week too since California's legalization bill (AB 390) passed the Public Safety Committee. Washington state also started hearings on a legalization bill. It's going to be a very busy year ahead too.. Many states are looking into decriminalization, medical use, and legalization.

    I'm pretty sure California's bill will pass the legislator, but their governor is a Republican..

    That is excellent news for Virginia, LiberalAvenger. I did not know you were from Virginia. You need to join the Whigs to help us define our platform and recruit members. Home | The Modern Whig Party of Virginia.

    [edit] I just wrote the Hon. Plum in support of this measure and emailed the page link to 6 family and friends. Please do the same, folks!

    This will not pass in Virginia, unfortunately. But I did just write my delegate in support.
