Re: “The Rant

I've written a few letters to a few politicians about this very thing. Actually, it's easier for our children to buy pot AND alcohol than it is for them to buy a pack of cigarettes! I'm not a pot smoker but I do love my cigarettes. If the politicians want to bring in more tax dollars, legalizing, controlling, and taxing marijuana would do the trick! The liquor stores could (or appropriately licensed head shops)could handle that. But, back to Michael Phelps! He really needs to be more careful picking his friends. I can think of more than a few of our popular atheletes that have had drug problems and were all but crowned King of the World because they went into "treatment". And we're not talking about drug problems with pot, but the really bad stuff like cocaine, crack, etc. And I know several people that become nasty individuals when drinking alcohol but give them some marijuana and all they want is something to eat and they'll sit and grin at you for hours. My own son is one of those individuals. You won't find someone high on pot out beating up people, robbing banks, or anything like that. They can't move fast enough! It would take them at least 15 minutes to get their guns out of their pockets and by then their opportunity will be long gone! Just think of the money the government would save if the folks that are in jail for possessing marijuana were set free. They might even finds jobs and take care of their families if they can take a job away from an illegal alien! I say "Leave Mike Phelps alone". His Olympic medals are just as important and impressive now as they were when he won them.
