Choose your own gatekeepers, don’t push them on others

From: Starchild – December 16, 2012

Michael,

If you feel more safe and comfortable with doctors or scientists acting as your gatekeepers, you should certainly have the choice to give them that responsibility and power over you. But please do not force this on others. Some of us would prefer to be our own gatekeepers, and look forward to a more civilized society that will recognize and respect our rights to do so.

Love & Liberty, ((( starchild )))

Rush Limbaugh changing tune on marijuana?

From: Starchild – December 10, 2012

I didn’t find any mention of the clip referred to below, but in this Nov. 28 transcript, while he doesn’t speak in favor of legalization, he does say that “It’s coming. Marijuana will be legal.” Although I’ve heard his show only rarely, my understanding is that Rush Limbaugh has not previously been supportive of marijuana legalization. (see e.g. http://www.tokeofthetown.com/2012/03/rush_limbaugh_trusts_the_fda_why_dont_you_maggot_s.php ), although interestingly a quick search didn’t turn up any quotes of him explicitly saying marijuana should remain criminalized.

For all his obtuseness or lack of clarity on the subject, however, Limbaugh remains the most popular political radio show host in the United States (see http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-04-23/news/31388517_1_sirius-xm-heavy-hundred-wnym ), so if he’s coming around and is now willing to openly support the legal argument in favor of legalization initiatives at the state level, it’s very good news.

Legal age to be an adult

From: Starchild – December 9, 2012

Lynette,

If we wait until 2016 to try for a California legalization initiative when it would presumably have a better chance of passing, then I think we ought to go for the better age limit of 18. Like Mickey however, I tend to feel that four years is too long to wait and that we should try to pass something in 2014, in which case your idea of letting individual counties set the age 18 vs. 21 after the initiative passes sounds like a reasonable compromise.

Actually there are a lot of cracks appearing in the facade of Drug Prohibition, both globally and in the U.S., and I think politicians like Clinton and Carter coming around is a sign of the times. Of course it would be nice if they’d spoken out when they were in a better position to do something about it as president, and if they would acknowledge their past hypocrisy and failure to do things a U.S. president could easily do, like pardon non-violent victims of the Drug War incarcerated in federal prisons, but better late and two-faced than never. > > Love & Liberty, > ((( starchild ))) > > > On Dec 4, 2012, at 7:28 AM, JHWebstr wrote: > > > Clinton and Carter blast “War on Drugs” > > > > URL: Trailer

Finally some progress

Thanks John, looks like a promising movie. Actually there are a lot of cracks appearing in the facade of Drug Prohibition, both globally and in the U.S., and I think politicians like Clinton and Carter coming around is a sign of the times.
