"In politics, today, you can almost get away with saying that marijuana ought to be legal and still have a shot at national office. Not, of course, without a large number of people claiming that your endorsement of legalization could only be driven by your clandestine desire to smoke as much dope as you can. Among philosophers, in contrast, it is difficult to find anyone who is willing to argue for the moral defensibility of the status quo." (05/25/11)
