What a great editorial!
After spending several paragraphs detailing the arguments of those opposed to Amendment 44 (legalizing marijuana), they respond with this:
BW position: Opponents are full of bull, and a large percentage of Boulder County readers knows it. Why? Because they smoke pot and lead healthy, functional lives. The war on pot is a waste of money and a waste of lives. Prohibition has never worked and never will. If alcohol and cigarettes, which are demonstrably more costly and harmful to human beings and to society, are legal, then ganja should be legal, too.
End the hypocrisy. Vote YES on Amendment 44.
Now that’s refreshing.
