    Don't break the law.  That's why you don't see me smoking pot every weekend despite my intense political opposition to narcotics laws and their effects.

    That doesn't make the "it's the law, silly" argument any less brutal.

    •  Amen. It really is that easy. (0+ / 0-)

      Consensual crimes are, by definition, a crime against yourself for the alleged benefit of saving your moral soul or preventing you from victimizing yourself and influencing others victimizing their selves. And since the law prevents me from refusing to charge myself of said offense or arguing that I'm responsible for my own health and eternal salvation I am left only with complying with that law or lose my freedom in order to protect the notion that if I want to change that law I need to find and vote for a representative that has the courage to admit that virtually nobody really agrees with the law and it needs to be changed because it is straight up bull**.
