reefer madness….


by problembear

those zany missoulians are at it again with their fist fight over whether the police and sheriff’s departments are ignoring a citizen’s initiative to make prosecution of small pot possession a low priority. i don’t actually have a selfish reason to join in the fray. i contracted whooping cough and bronchitis as a kid and can’t stand to smoke anything. all my sin is poured into my bear jaws in liquid form. while attending university of oregon in the seventies i was always the only one in the house who refused the puff at the party and endured my share of funny looks and paranoid stares from people who were sure i was the narc….and when i hit the scene here in missoula i always felt welcome at jim crumley’s parties but i often got the impression that some of his guests would have felt better if i had indulged in some killer weed once in awhile…but i digress…

i do however have a dog in this fight as a full fledged member of the “americans who believe it is none of your god-damned busy body business what i do as long as i don’t hurt anyone else.” (adults only please) i guess this zeal to stop reefer madness is the last remnant of reagan’s dream of america which has vaporized in a cloud of greed gone wrong. maybe this isn’t scientific or anything but i have never met anyone who is in favor of  maintaining archaic laws keeping small amounts of pot smoked by adults as felonious illegal possession. seems kind of ridiculous for our public servants to waste time money and jail space on this.

and as for allowing medical use for a pain and stress relieving drug to folks who could be helped by this there is absolutely no room to argue against this by any sane person. legalization for pot for any adult who wants it is the onlyanswer. none for me please…
