It's not beer or wine.

Kind of like medical marijuana and recreational marijuana. It's marijuana.
No one has medicinal Shock Top. No one opts for the recreational vodka.

It's terrorism. We have laws on the books about terrorists. Use them.

Terrorism is terrorism. It may not always be treason, but it's terrorism.

We make this distinction at our own peril.
