Conservatives should support personal freedom with legalized marijuana

Posted 4 April 2021 at 2:11 pm


I was enjoying a typical Friday morning with my coffee and ritualistic routine: the stock page, weather, Drudge, followed by the morning news and a quick catching-up on local events.  Then it started.

A worrisome uneasiness followed by a growing sense of dread, palpitations, fatigue, libido crash, lethargy – culminating in a frightening inability to focus, wild paranoia and finally … the worst case of the shakes in years!

Already out of control, my symptoms quickly escalated to utter & absolute panic, nausea, respiratory distress and a feeling I was on the edge of passing out.

I mean, what the heck is going on here, what could be causing this??? Reefer madness? A possible overdose of pot-laced baked goods? Police custody?  Nope. Just another fringe opine in the Hub from “Mr. Chairman” bashing what will soon be perfectly good law-abiding stoners.

I thought conservatives believe that more freedom is a good thing? So much for the party of less government, personal liberty and personal responsibility.

I guess when it comes to conservatives it just depends on exactly who’s getting that freedom.

Or not.
