According to CNN US representatives are working on legislation to end penalties for marijuana usage. Representative Barney Frank is quoted in the article saying, “The vast amount of human activity ought to be none of the government’s business.”
I’m always taken aback when the government does something that makes sense. This is no exception.
*Note to anyone who cares. I don’t drink or smoke tobacco, so no I’m not a pot head. I just happen to think that criminalization of marijuana use is a drain on public resources, and hypocritical given its stance on alcohol and tobacco.
