legalizing marijuana is good for people who have something going for them


I saw a news report on Monday about a big pot-smoking gathering--somewhere and something to do with April 20. I'll be the first to admit that my understanding of stoner holidays is lacking. Anyway, the participants in this gala were so stereotypical of the types you would expect to find at this type of extravaganza--it was comical.

To anyone who doesn't look favorably upon legalizing marijuana let me suggest something--it's the best thing that could ever happen to those of us who have ambition, want to make something out of our lives, and/or aspire to having a future we can look back on (and recall) with satisfaction.

Do you know any habitual pot smokers? I do--and to-a-person they are the dictionary definition of "loser." The more losers there are in this Country, the easier the competition for the rest of us.

As someone who has taught at least one college class for each of the last 26 years, I've seen the steady demise of intelligent life on Earth. It makes me feel good about the future of my young relatives who do well in school, excel in extracurricular activities, and are well-mannered. They have and will continue to run circles around their fried contemporaries.

So toke-up. The future of my family depends on it.

None of that matters. What matters is that smoking some dried plant is entirely within the purview of your natural liberties. You're responsible for your behavior and life thereafter, of course. You of all people should realize that, 'Galt'.
