It's time for U. S. drug laws to be reformed

Sometimes a Smoke is Just a Smoke

Kathleen Parker, WASHINGTON, February 13, 2009

Drink and drive and it's grrrrrrrr-eat! Smoke pot and your flakes are frosted, dude.

So seems the message from Kellogg, which has decided not to renew its sponsorship contract with Michael Phelps after the Olympian was photographed smoking marijuana at a party in South Carolina.

In our peculiar obsession to track down the Willie Nelsons, Rush Limbaughs, and now Michael Phelpses of society -- nonviolent, victimless imbibers of drugs -- we've actually made society less safe. That's the conclusion of 10,000 cops, prosecutors, judges and others who make up the membership of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. (link)


Great article! I agree. Like Kathleen Parker, I am not convinced that all drugs should be legalized but it is time for the silliness of pot prohibition to end.
