A sign of desperation — banning images

In Dumaguete City in the Philippines, it will soon be illegal to display a picture of a marijuana leaf. This is, of course, in order to “protect the morality of society.”
The notion is laughable, because all this will do is create an increased interest in finding ways around the law. I’m betting that by the time this ordinance is enacted, some enterprising individual will be selling stickers with a single green maple leaf (or some other multi-pointed leaf), and everyone will know what it represents.
