Is Bill McCollum a complete moron when it comes to the subject of
marijuana or just pandering for the holier-than-thou crowd?

The only problem with marijuana is that it is illegal! My guess is the
alcohol trade wants to keep it that way to keep the competition out of
the drug trade. Yes, I said drug trade because alcohol is a drug and a
much worse drug than marijuana is, was or could ever be.

How many calls do the police get for domestic violence, robberies,
fights or other crimes that the person is intoxicated on marijuana?
How about compared to alcohol?

McCollum further states growing marijuana is a threat. A threat to

We have friends who just came back from visiting Amsterdam - a mother
and daughter. They went into a parlor and enjoyed a legal marijuana
cigarette. Big deal. Does McCollum think these people belong in jail
or rehab?

Unless McCollum is trying to make alcohol illegal and have the same
penalties for possession as marijuana, he is a hypocrite.
