Pot? Bah Humbug. I’ve got the straight edge.

I really could care less about the movement to legalize pot or pot in general.

I do not think it is because of my religion, as much as it is that I am leftist straight edge.

Here is the Minor Threat song that comes to my mind when people raise any issue related to pot:

Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat, and later Fugazi, explained his song on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

    You actually ought to care about MJ legalization, insofar as the “War on Drugs” has been a massive injustice perpetuated mainly on groups that you otherwise care about–principally poor minorities. Our overcrowded prisons are full of nonviolent drug offenders, many arrested because of MJ, to the point that the US has the highest incarceration rate in the western world and penalties that are exponentially higher than in e.g. most places in continental Europe.

    I hate the thought of legalizing marijuana! While I may not be in favor of serious jail time, I am very concerned about the effects of this drug. It is often seen as harmless, but that is hardly the case.
