The Marijuana Closet

More

It's a problem, as a reader notes:

Larison is right about decriminalized marijuana. And you are right about decriminalized marijuana. The argument "duuuude, I want to get wasted all the time" is written off by most people. The argument "I would never touch the stuff but we can save money sick people libertarianism blah blah blah" is cold.

We need credible people to stand up and say "I contribute to society, I work hard, I love my family, and I smoke pot. This is the only way I break the law. The law is wrong." And we need a lot of them. There are a lot of people that could make this argument. Unfortunately, society being what it is, a lot of people, myself included, are (excuse the metaphor) in the closet.
