“…if we’re allowed to read any book that we want under freedom of speech, why is it we can’t put into our body whatever we want?”
The Texas congressman is the only wouldbe Republican nominee, so far, who has the cajones to question our insane drug laws. All they do is give the police an excuse not to spend time fighting real crime and actually protecting us.
As I was reminded the other day reading this tale in the daily of the BIG drug bust (mostly marijuana) at Texas Christian University. I could not help but sneer. What petty nonsense. Well, it keeps the police off the streets.
Very similar to the MSM’s current preoccupation with contraception, instead of focusing on the still-collapsing economy. Reminds me of how the Texas legislature
biannually biennially gins up some incremental abortion or AIDS controversy to preoccupy the media and the public so the lobby can get on with the real business of seeking, paying for and receiving special deals for its clients.
