24. The agenda doesn't need validation. Some laws are wrong. The drug war is a giant disaster.
A giant, expensive, cruel disaster that is fundamentally antithetical to any cogent concept of personal liberty.
"oh, people dont want to spend $60 billion a year to harass Willie Nelson and cancer grannies for smoking a relatively harmless plant! People don't want the government in charge of what they can do WITH THIR OWN GOD DAMN BODIES!! waaaah!"
It's the same sort of pissy authoritarianism that makes the religious right mad when they can't stop gay people fom getting married, or women from using birth control. "you neeeed to let ME tell you what to DO!!! Because it's my right to fucking micromanage ALL of your god damn decisions!!"
Well, guess what. People are sick of that bullshit. And, for the record- lots of cops (although, oddly, not the ones milking the taxpayer financed drug war GRAVY$$$$ TRAIN$$$$ for all it's worth) are against the stupid drug war.
