    I think it may be more of a case that people shouldn't be criminally prosecuted for smoking it.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Well, marijuana is a drug and drugs are good if you are a liberal.

        Not necessarily. Tobacco is a drug, but liberals don't want it smoked anywhere near them. And Prohibition was actually a liberal idea back in the day.

          Is pot the only drug that liberals approve?

              Warning -- OFF TOPIC!!!!

              Many years ago, our local CVS-like drug store was the only store in town that publicly sold Playboy, Penthouse, etc... they were on a rack just before the cash registers, and ANYBODY (including kids) could see them.

              Several people in our Church mentioned they wanted to do a boycott campaign, or 'something' to get them to remove "the porn". I suggested we give the manager the courtesy of ASKING him first.

              SO, one day I stopped into the store, and asked for the manager. He came up to the front, and I introduced myself, exchanged some pleasantries, then told him the purpose of my visit.

              He said, "no problem, I'll have them removed by the overnight shift, and they won't be here tomorrow". I was stunned. I said "are you KIDDING"? He said, "no, I have objected to them to my boss, but he said I couldn't do anything til I got a complaint from a customer -- now I have a complaint!"

              I stopped by the next day, and, sure enough, they were GONE -- not just relocated, but totally boxed up and returned to the vendor! And, yes, I made sure to thank him, and let the Church know how it went, encouraging them to support that store!
              The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                Sort of. We can't go mixing alcohol and caffeine and selling the combination, and my nanny state (MD) is getting ready to ban sales of grain alcohol.
