Chuck Norris Smokes Marijuana Debate

It would be nice if there weren’t so many lies told about marijuana when arguing for legalization.
Check it out:

To say marijuana isn’t so dangerous as alcohol is like saying a plain doughnut isn’t so bad for us as a glazed one. The point is what? Wouldn’t it simply be better to ditch the doughnuts from our diets and try whole-wheat toast with organic peanut butter and sliced bananas as a more nutritious way to start our days?

It suffices to say here that justifying the use of one drug because it’s not so dangerous as another drug is weak reasoning in any book and bad grounds for justifying usage of either of them. Maybe it’s time we fight all addictive drugs instead of making excuses for using them. Maybe it’s time we try to conquer potentially addictive passions instead of succumbing to them. Maybe it’s time we believe life can be good enough on its own merit without any drug use.

I’m not here making a case for or against the medicinal use of marijuana. However, it’s very difficult for me to believe that America, average healthy Americans and particularly our younger generations are going to be better off with pot’s legalization.

I’m all for freedom, but when liberty turns into licentiousness, it’s time to reconsider why we’re doing what we’re doing. Just because we can doesn’t mean we should. And if that’s the case, what other illicit passion is going to be next in the lineup of legalization?
