Is everything about pot?Submitted by KongVault on Sat, 10/27/2012 - 12:12
When I first started reading this site, I thought the main issues to members here, and to liberty supporters around the country, were monetary policy, civil liberties, and the expensive and consequential wars. Those are the things I care about.
Now I don't care if people smoke pot, and I favor legalizing it and all drugs for the sake of protecting liberty, stopping the expensive drug war, and having it available for medical purposes.
But it seems like every other thread here turns into a discussion about pot or what the best pro-pot candidate is. I don't think any single issue gets mentioned here as much as pot. The pot legalization comments at rallies and debates get the biggest cheers. They should get cheers, but to me it's starting to seem like pot legalization is what the movement has become all about. I'm still glad that the issues I care about more are getting attention in the movement, but I feel like many people are just jumping on the bandwagon with those issues, not really understanding them, and will support just about anything as long as legalizing pot is included.
What do you think?
