Why is that? No I mean really, why would I do that?

Aside from the fact that I am pro freedom, ie pro marijuana by default, why would I support the legalization of marijuana? Especially when those who want marijuana legalized will turn around tomorrow and vote to tax/restrict me of something I want like lower taxes, less gun control, ending all entitlements and foreign aid......

So tell me, where can I find in the "mission statement" of NORML or any other pro marijuana organisation's charter about securing freedom for things other than marijuana?

I don't disagree that we should but again, won't these same people vote for more gun control next week?

  • the problem is the American mindset not being able to see beyond their own wants. I want ALL freedoms, you just want yours.

That seems like a bit of a straw man there. I mean, the NRA does not advocate things not related to guns so why would NORML do the same? I think the democratic nature of our society has forced people to only be concerned with their interests. Personally 2A and cannibus decriminalization are both issues I care about. It's our tax dollars that fund the enforcement of all this crap so I say a rollback in anything related to overbearing enforcment is a step forward.

That seems like a bit of a straw man there.

Not really, if the NRA or someone who advocates for them came here and asked the same as this post did I'd say the same thing. In fact I have. You/he/they asked for my support and I simply asked why I should. I then created an argument against legalizing it while explaining that I believed it should be legalized.

so I say a rollback in anything related to overbearing enforcment is a step forward.

See? That's a step in the right direction. It's unfortunate that so many who want to legalize pot also want to criminalize firearms.......and vice versa.

This post is the definition of projection.

No, it was more of a mental exercise for all of you. A demonstration. You failed.

Your criticism is only valid for groups like the ACLU that claim to be for all freedom

You asked for my support. I didn't seek you out and offer to make a deal.

Not only did you not deny my assumption but you outright avoided answering the question and in doing so have further cemented my belief that you only care about YOU. That's bad. If you are pro marijuana you should definitely NOT advocate for it publicly.
