The devastation of marijuana

Andrew Stuttaford reminds us of how the Michael Phelps scandal highlights the debilitating effects of the most evil drug ever developed by Man:

I merely note that this broken wreck of a man’s failure to win any more than a pathetic fourteen Olympic gold medals (so far) is a terrifying warning of the horrific damage that cannabis can do to someone’s health—and a powerful reminder of just how sensible the drug laws really are.

I despise the drug-war and I despise its idiot supporters even more. There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for the continued existence of the ludicrously ineffective drug laws, much less the many violations of human liberty their enforcement is used to excuse.

Anti-drug conservatives have to be among the dumbest and most illogical individuals in the nation, since the idea of forcibly preventing a man from making a decision that might lead to his eventual harm should be completely anathema to conservatives on both philosophical and practical grounds.
