For the life of me I cannot understand why marijuana is considered a political issue.
It’s not a religious issue either, in my estimation.
I see politicians on TV still arguing that weed should remain criminalized, and it always makes me think they are out of touch with the common person, as well as being stupid. That’s right, I said it – if you think marijuana should be illegal, you are an idiot. I don’t care if your reasons are political or religious, you’re a moron if you think there is anything wrong with cannabis. That doesn’t mean that I expect everyone to use cannabis products. After all, every person should have the freedom to make their own choices, and I respect the choice to not smoke cannabis. By the same token, every person should have the freedom to smoke marijuana if they so choose. When something as widely desired is illegal, people will still find a way to get it. The government spent decades trying to stop the production and sale of illegal cannabis, and they completely failed. In every town in America it was still possible to buy marijuana despite its legal status. A lot of good people went to jail for a little bit of marijuana, which wound up costing this nation billions of dollars. And why? What was the purpose of demonizing something as harmless and fun as cannabis? I don’t care if you want to smoke cannabis or not, there is no way you could convince me that it should be illegal. Do you agree, or are you an idiot?
