"In the firmament of celebrated Americana, there is Mom, apple pie, football and beer -- but there most certainly is not marijuana. ... through our statutes, we allow law-abiding citizens to use only one recreational substance -- alcohol -- that just happens to be way more hazardous than pot. Such idiocy is the product of many variables. There’s been interest-group maneuvering and temperance-movement hypocrisy. There’s been hippie-hating rage and reefer-madness paranoia. And, most invisibly, there’s been college." (09/16/11)
