Finally, we're getting somewhere. Please keep in mind that I do not use drugs, and certainly would never try marijuana, however I feel that most drugs should be legal.
From the article:
Current laws targeting marijuana users place undue burdens on law enforcement resources, punish ill Americans whose doctors have prescribed the substance and unfairly affect African-Americans, said Frank, flanked by legislators and representatives from advocacy groups.
I think the absurdity of punishing marijuana vendors but not users will force the issue to head in the next decade. I agree with Frank about the undue burdens, punishing ill people, but that it "unfairly" affects African Americans is bunk. They are just as responsible before the law as anyone else; this is no question of fairness, it's a question of obeying a stupid law. You can't assign "victim" status to someone who breaks the law. Rubbish!
