Glenn Greenwald on Legalizing Marijuana

Courtey of Salon.com, Glenn Greenwald brings us a list of phrases equally stupid as ‘If you want to legalize marijuana, that just means you want to get high’. 

Among the list:

(5) Anyone who believes abortion should be legal just wants to have reckless sex without consequences.  

and

(7) Anyone who opposes unrestrained government surveillance must be doing bad things in private that they want to hide.

Thanks to Mr. Greenwald for the amusing – but still accurate – article. You’d be surprised how often I hear comments like the first one, and it still surprises me too. But I guess this gets at the notion of what a civil liberty is.

Repeal of Rockefeller Drug Laws – Senate Votes Tomorrow

The Drug Policy Alliance just sent an email reminding all New Yorkers that the state legislature votes tomorrow on a repeal of the Rockefeller Drug Laws. Contact your legislators and Governor Paterson to ensure that this repeal passes. (The DPA’s automated feature will send your letter to both your state senator and Governor Paterson in one go).
