There are a lot of reasons for ordinary people to not get drug policy reform, particularly if they haven’t spent much time thinking about it or studying it.
But there’s a point…
You listen to a prohibitionist who spends a lot of time dealing with drug policy, and there’s a point when you realize that there is no possible way that a reasonably informed person could make such a statement.
That leaves only one question: evil or stupid?
Sometimes it’s obvious, but not always.
Bonus question (proceed with caution if stoned):
Is it possible that a prohibitionist could be so stupid that she listens to what I have to say and concludes that no reasonably informed person could say that, and then truly believes that I must either be evil or stupid… ?
