I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

Clear Truth of Herbal Remedies

Perhaps a little sanity, and a moment of truth away from the game of Clear Politics, was heard when the Major of Chicago endorsed a program to make possession of a small amount of marijuana worthy of no more than a misdemeanor ticket. 94% of those arrested are having there cases dismissed anyway, and the mayor said that cost the city money. The newly suggested program would make money for the city. Still, not enough clarity to legalize, but wait…

In the bastion of intellectual intolerance, the lockstepping followers of group thought have come up with a pretty good plan. A Berkeley, CA. group calling itself Americans for Safe Access, said they plan on petitioning the Department of Health and Human Services claiming the department has spread inaccurate information about marijuana’s medical value. Yes, they are going to petition the government to tell the truth — yeah, good luck on that one.

There is a candidate that believes in freedom, even if you want to spend your day high, but he will not be winning the presidency this November.

Imagine the moderator, or audience member, of the next presidential debate: “It appears that you have both used illicit drugs in the past. Neither of you have been arrested for such use, yet millions are in prison for such use. What is you stance on the United States’ drug policy.”

A hush would come over the audience. Why are some questions off limits? We can talk of war and death, but stay away from that drug subject. Is this even a real conversation in a “free society?
