    When your close relative is smack in the middle of the first round of chemo, feeling just awful all the time, just lost hair, can't find the strength to eat anything, and an occasional bong is the only thing that helps at all, then it's somehow more important.

    This is likely to happen in everyone's family, eventually.

    Not that

    The war on drugs is perpetrated by those who have been unable to patent the drugs.

    And by the people who profit from privatized prisons and schools.

    It's not us. And it sure the hell isn't Congresswoman Barbara Lee. She is a genuine treasure and it's still a joy to see her serve in Congress.

    And my dickish™ Congressjerk nullifies a vote by those who are on the right side of history.
