27. I've never understood this country's obsessive fear of marijuana
Is it fear? I don't know because I simply can't grasp what's going on here. How many thousands of folks die every year die at the hands of alcohol-impaired drivers? How many thousands more are victims of domestic violence were alcohol is involved? Just what are the statistics for other crimes where booze is a factor? Yet marijuana is illegal?? I just don't get it. We promote and pander alcohol to children yet people who are suffering can't get medical marijuana?

This country is so screwed up where our priorities are concerned. Caught between unfettered capitalism and fundamentalism, it's only a matter of time until this society totally implodes.
