Sigh, I've listened to all the arguments for and against. Yes, your post has validity.
I fall back on personal experience when debate fails to come up with an answer that satisfies me, personally.
To wit. We live in a drug culture. Psych drugs, pain killers, street drugs, artificial drugs, booze. Cocktails resulting from these mixes. Younger and younger users due to popularization/legalization. Soaring suicide rates and suicide-mass murder incidents well documented in their connection to psych drug usage as well.
My view is it's gone too far.
Freedom is a huge issue. So is restraint and responsibility. Self-imposed or society imposed. More of the former is preferable to the latter.
Balance between the two is where I stand.
P.S. it wasn't a snide comment as much as humor. As you have pushed 'pot' into the general freedom issue this is my response to that general subject
Nothing changes the fact that 'pot' is, by itself, about a small potato 'issue' as is out there, IMO....
