A libertarian is a capitalist who believes in the right to discriminate against other people and who also likes to get stoned.
They have their own online forum now, Reason, funded by the Koch Network.
I saw this interesting article over at Reason yesterday, Scofflaws paved the way for legal marijuana.
"Willingness to break the law to do things that people know they have every right to do helps to make it acceptable for others to follow suit. As more people engage in illegal activities, those activities become less alien and threatening even to those who have no interest in joining the party and reveal legal restrictions as unenforceable. That makes it seem increasingly attractive to call off the cops and leave people alone to live their lives."
Having smoked for about 85% of my life at this point, the great majority of the time breaking a law or two along the way, I guess I agree with this guy. All this time I have been a warrior for the greater good and social change.
I must confess that I don't get worked up or excited about marijuana any more, more like brushing my teeth or drinking milk. Not going to bake a cake over the whole thing.
I'm old school. Don't want to hear about the new strains, they ruined a lot of great sativa when the indica craze hit and we lost them forever.
Don't believe in a lot of indoor, don't trust the growers to flush poisons or not to over fertilize, still an outdoor sativa organic caveman. Sun, water and earth. Simple equation.
But you folks, go ahead and fire away. If you want to smoke, smoke, if you don't, don't.
Have a good time either way. Happy four twenty.
