It is amusing seeing the Republican front-runner squirming about
allegations of past drug use, something that the right wing tried to
use to sink Bill Clinton in 1988 and in 1992. Still, I wonder when the
press will ask the truly relevant question, which is:

"Since your apparent youthful discretions have no bearing on the type
of person you are today, do you plan on pardoning the hundreds of
thousands of former drug users imprisoned for their youthful
indiscretions? Or is that priviledge reserved for people of wealthy
and influential families?"
