A CNN headline today tells me that Canada's government has a whole Lot more common sense than ours. Two prominent Canadian professors have won the right to use medical Marijuana.
Here in America you can earn a death sentence for a non-violent pot offense. Commit a murder and get 3.5 years in prison.
No, I'm not a pot smoker, but looking at our prisons with insufficient space for violent offenders, leads me to believe our drug laws were formulated in a state of hysteria. Certainly without rational thought. You would think Prohibition would have taught us something. Guess it didn't.
