Did you happen to hear that mighty sigh rise up from Texas? Maybe you missed it, but a whole state, sighed a mighy sigh of relief.They cured cancer ? No.They caught Osama? No.But, they did happen to make an arrest.
Yes, we can all feel relieved that an aging country western stoner was busted for having some pot.
There is a slight chance I am being a bit sarcastic about this arrest in the Lone Star state.I am.
The fact that true criminals can walk around while someone with a bit of pot in their pocket can face serious jail time in parst of this country is beyond absurd.It is about as logical as a screen door on a submariine.
Wouldn’t spending time and money on killers, rapist, and crooks who wreck an entire economy be a far more useful idea, then say, busting aging hippies who like to get high?
I sure feel safer.
Oddly, this is one of the few , rare moments I have anything in common with libertarians.I will not even begin to discuss all my issues with libertarianism, that would just go way beyond my mental capacity on a Sunday night to babble on about..But, to keep it slightly short, and precise; this may be the one and only thing we agree on.As they say;a libertarian is just a conservative who likes to smoke pot.
