Religion Has More Harmful Effects Than Pot

Our government was established to protect our freedom to live our lives as we choose – as long we don’t interfere with others by force or fraud. Pretty simple, huh? And then somewhere along the line, the Morality Nazi’s (religious prigs – usually American Christians) got into positions of power and began to decide that they knew better than we – how we should live our own lives.

So the concept of ‘consensual crime’ was born and began to eat away at our freedom like malignant cancer cells on steroids. From the early 1800’s, our government threw up literally millions of laws to tell us how we should live.  They decided what we could put into our bodies – with whom we could have sex (and how) – and if we could gamble or drive junkie cars.

Starting tomorrow in Colorado, pot will be legally sold and taxed at specially regulated retailers much like legal alcohol is sold now. That state is smart enough to make money on a vice it knows it can’t stop.

Traditionalists are wailing! I’m laughing my ass off (as I take another toke.)

    So you don’t think our society should protect a person against himself?

    Alan, I think you should have the right to harm yourself – as long as you don’t directly harm others – by any means you choose.
