Marajuana needs to be legalized. This is ridiculous. I'm not saying this for me - I don't smoke it.
I'd kind of like to be able to smoke it though. It would be nice to be more mellow. I'm not mellow.
The problem I see is making criminals out of totally harmless people. One of our friends was arrested this week - in New Orleans. He was riding his bike and had a small bag of weed. He is probably the most peaceful person I know. I find it hard to believe there wasn't something more pressing going on in New Orleans that night for the police to pay attention to.
I really can't believe we're still having this conversation. Except I guess we're not even having it because it's still illegal and it's still ridiculous.
Oh, and he didn't have reflectors on his bike. A little high on a bike or a lot drunk in a car - which is the menace to society?
