Ladies and Gentlemen, Please take the time to read this ENTIRE article, its one of the best articles on the Libertarian philosophy I’ve read… Yes, the article isn’t really about pot…
Supporting the decriminalization of pot does not mean supporting its recreational consumption. Let’s be honest about pot’s effects on people who smoke it regularly: first it makes them dull, then apathetic, and finally stupid. With enough repeated use, recreational pot use turns intelligent, productive people into unmotivated stoners.
That doesn’t mean it should be illegal, however. And that’s the point of this article: I am wholehearted in support of marijuana decriminalization, yet at the same time I strongly encourage people to avoid smoking it. That’s the difference between me and a police state government, by the way: I believe in your right to choose what you wish to do with your body, while the police state government would far prefer to shove a gun in your face, slap a pair of handcuffs on your wrists and throw you into the prison system which is little more than a modern-day slave labor camp that benefits corporate interests under the guise of fighting the “war on drugs.”
