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.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
