38. Every once in a while I see, or hear, or read something that opens
a door of understanding in my mind. Often the basic data is something I already know but it is expressed in a way I hadn't thought of. You gave me such a "click" moment this morning, everydayis911. I know that marijuana is far less dangerous than nicotine and liquor and has far fewer side effects than many pharmaceuticals. For some time I have believed that marijuana should be legal and uncontrolled. However I had never put two and two together and realized that the corporate entities in the liquor and pharmaceutical industries (probably tobacco too, wouldn't you think?) would be against legalization. Unfortunately, now that I am aware I am also more pessimistic than ever about legalization as those are some pretty powerful entities with very deep pockets.

Another black mark on capitalism's slate.

Peace and I hope you never have to move,

freefall
