This is not evidence of bias

If a buddy came over and asked me to go deer hunting out of season, help him distill rum, show me how to convert my semi-automatic rifle to full auto, or any other number of illegal activities, I would say no, regardless of what I think of the laws. It is a bad idea to teach children to only obey laws that they agree with.

Drinking beer is not the same as smoking a joint because of the legal status. It is not bias to not want to demonstrate law breaking in front of children. It is good parenting. I support legalization of all drugs at the federal level. However, marijuana simply is not the same as beer because of the legal status.

Even so, I wouldn't drink beer or smoke cigarettes in front of my children, either. Though they are legal, they are bad habits to demonstrate.

I'm guessing that you don't have children.
