Spare Me Your Moral Tyranny
Bill Quick

Boss Emeritus: Put aside the pot jokes and look again at Colorado legalization « Hot Air

I’m not a fan of marijuana, and I do worry about the moral signal that legalizing recreational use sends, but at least so far it hasn’t had any worse impact than alcohol. We should at least study the impact of marijuana so that we can have an informed debate.

How about the “moral signal” being sent by legal alcohol, nicotine, and the generation of legal speed freaks being created in our schools?

Of course banning some drugs because of moral (would that be religious) objections surely couldn’t be considered as an example of religious lust to proscribe various activities as being sinful for everybody, whether they believe in your faith or not, could it?

Statists and tyrants. I hate them all with every fiber of my being, no matter which religious or secular god motivates their lust for power and control over the lives of others.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
