Something Someone Else Said

"America's drug war insanity deepens. What I love about the harrumphing is its total incoherence. The argument, so far as I can tell, is: a) marijuana destroys people, renders them incapable of productive and worthwhile lives; b) yes, the new president and the greatest Olympic swimmer of all time have smoked pot; c) but that means we have to punish them all the more!

Because they disprove the lies
required to sustain the Prohibition. The more the myths of the anti-cannabis brigade are exposed, the more they have to be enforced." -Andrew Sullivan, The Daily Dish, on the news that Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps may now be prosecuted for alleged cannabis use after the above picture was published in a British tabloid.

Bone 'em if you got 'em, as my Air Force roomie used to say.

I did not know our pres has puffed. And who cares if Phelps did? Did it enhance his performance? Only if it was a (stupid) contest right? A special kind of stupid.

Our president has puffed and also railed up. Our previous president did these things too but his own special kind of stupid prevents much honesty from leaking out.
