Food For Thought

This being the week of 4/20, I'll be posting things that I find relevant to our nation's nonsensical prohibition of cannabis. To start off, consider this quote from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand:

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can be neither observerd nor enforced nor objectively interpreted--and you create a nation of lawbreakers--and then you cash in on guilt. "
