Christie Gives Green Light to NJ "Medical" Marijuana Program

"Medical."

And we all know that "medical" means "I'm feelin' stressy," most of the time.

But, so what? As I wrote I just no longer have any interest in using the coercive power of the state to impose my personal preferences on recreational drug use on anyone else.

I think this sort of law winds up undermining respect for the law. It breeds cynicism. And as the "law" remains mostly a paper law while cops and prosecutors increasingly ignore it, it tends to teach a bad lesson: The law is ill-considered and immodest and mostly in place for purposes of hassling people randomly.

Right now I'm on a general small government/trust citizens kick.
