I agree with Kristin Rose that any parent who would lobby for legalizing 
marijuana should take a step into the 21st century and leave the swinging 
'60s to Austin Powers.

It is immoral and unethical, not to mention a sign of questionable 
parenting, to want to legalize a drug that supports terrorism.

We could make the argument that it has medical uses and helps glaucoma and 
eases pain in cancer patients, but is it really worth the risk of having 
our children, the nation's future, not be able to solve the war on 
terrorism because their brains are full of bong resin?

This is an illegal drug. It should stay illegal and out of children's hands.
