Because there was nothing in the bible about weed. :p
When all the large numbers of people who believe this and other ridiculous thought patterns slowly disappear leaving the majority of less susceptible
supporters, then we may have some common sense on that.
Everyone who thinks for themselves and doesn't just think what they are told, will at least admit that if you prohibit the weed, then you must
prohibit the drink. The current way is far too hypocritical.
I can tell you for sure that you better believe I actually may be dangerous with a bottle of scotch in my belly legally. That is why I rarely drink
and if so only small amounts.
Everyone that knows me can tell you for sure that other things make me the calmest, funniest and most caring person they know.
I merely just want parity on what is legal and what isn't.
I don't like getting really drunk but don't want to stop others using their freedom to do so.
I wish I had the same level of respect from my lawmakers.
One of the big problems for legalisation is the large scale sacking of police. It is well known and admitted by several high ranking police chiefs in
Australia that 80% to 90% of funding to police goes to the doomed "War on Drugs", yet 80% to 90% of their time goes to cleaning up the problems
created by alcohol.
Seems to make sense, huh?!.
What is needed is some rationality on the part of all sides of the debate and an open mind that is willing to be changed by evidence, not a donkeys
stubbornness in never backing down on their point of view.
If someone can prove to me how drinking is a lot safer to me as an individual and those around me than the things I like are worse I would happily
change my mind and start drinking like a fish.
Just don't be around when that happens.
