"I don't feel that our country is headed in the right direction. The deficit looms out of control and drama dominates our news. We don't respect different opinions anymore. Our leaders are lost in their ivory towers while Rome burns. Something isn't right. I suspect it has to do with this joke of a drug war. What could really make a difference is to legalize drugs and tax them. Think of it, an expense could be changed into a large revenue stream, but our leaders won't consider it. Hell, George Washington grew and smoked pot. I like smoking pot. It is something that I find enjoyable. I don't do it all the time. This week I have been hitting it pretty hard. I like the effects. I just don't understand why it is illegal. Tell me why. I would like to know."
