Marijuana Policy Moving Towards Change



On the most recent edition of HBO’s Bill Maher program Representative Barney Frank (D) Massachusetts states his intention to file a bill which would end federal prohibition of possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. Congressman Frank is already receiving some published support. In an excellent column for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer travel writer Rick Steves compares the European approach to marijuana policy with that of the United States, He observes that, ”when it comes to marijuana, European leaders understand that a society must choose: Tolerate alternative lifestyles or build more prisons. They've made their choice. We're still building more prisons.”

It is not really an illiteracy to spell someone's name wrong and other than that you have not pointed out any mistakes by me.

Not at all, Keith, not at all. I just like to take a break now and then from writing my book and do something entertaining. There are few things more entertaining than you are when somebody points out one of your characteristic illiteracies.

Best,

What a shallow life you must lead waiting around all day for me to make a mistake. Well now you are one for two.

Okay, Keith, we're all waiting with clutched sides for your explanation of why "Bill Marr" is correctly spelled.
