It doesn't matter what YOU believe, it
matters what the law says. Your personal
beliefs mean squat in court, try it sometime.


The Governor of Nevada believes he can levy a 15% retail tax on marijuana, even though it's illegal under federal law. Members of the Nevada state legislature believe they have the right to legalize and license marijuana smoking lounges marketed for tourists, even though the entire enterprise is illegal under federal law. Members of the Vermont state legislature believe they have the right to legalize recreational pot even though it's illegal under federal law.

None of those politicians will go to jail. The federal government should prosecute all of them for aiding and abetting the distribution of pot, but it won't happen. If marijuana is as evil as the federal government says it is, then the damage that those politicians are doing is exponentially more damaging to society than letting Gary Howard wander around with 1/2 ounce.

Nobody believes that nonsense.

> damaging to society
Nobody cares about damage to society; they care about damage to voting blocks such as Guard's Unions, Prison Construction and Operation Companies, Prosecutors, Judges, Parole Officers, Rehabilitation Managers, etc.

You might just as well be passing laws about opening eggs at the top or at the bottom.

Ain't no rationale to the laws other than that illegality makes it profitable.
