Jim Warren should have told us what age he figures is old enough to
join the army to kill and die for your country if he figures the
government should be protecting children from cannabis until they are

I figure if you're old enough to kill or die for your country, you're 
old enough to engage in vices. Governments were never intended
to protect children from adult vices. It is the duty of parents to
instill ethics and morals in their children, not the state.

Parents protect children from every other danger in their universe
like household electricity, dangerous chemicals under the sink and
medicines in the household, not to mention firearms so why can't
parents protect their children from cannabis?

The day of government lies to control our drugs is done. Cannabis
never was a danger and is not a danger today even for drivers. We do 
have Chapter 8 of the Nolan Senate Special Committee on Illegal drugs to 
inform our opinions.

Drivers high on cannabis are safer than those high on life was the
conclusion so why any penalty at all?

Pot impairs judgement and ability, so we'd rather there be penalties
for smokin' and drivin'.
