I've noticed that a number of conservatives are opposed to laws that prohibit the sale and use of a mind-altering, mind-numbing gateway drug like marijuana.
You may not be aware of it but if you want legalized marijuana, you are adopting a leftist mind set, a leftist way of thinking that is counter to the thinking that motivated our founding fathers to declare our nation's independence and establish the rule of law through our Constitution.
Please note, I'm not questioning your conservatism, I'm just pointing out that it is a leftist mindset that says, "Don't try to use laws to push YOUR morality on ME." Such a mindset tends to ignore the fact that "no man is an island." Marijuana use affects us all, not just the user.
