I knew this was coming. Only a matter of when.
After horrific shootings, we hear calls for stricter regulation of guns. The Tucson shooting should remind us why we regulate marijuana.
Jared Lee Loughner, the man held as the Tucson shooter, has been described by those who know as a â€œpot smoking loner.â€
He had two encounters with the law, one for possession of drug paraphanalia. […]
After the Tucson shooting, there may be renewed pressure to control the weapons that committed the crime. But what about the drugs that may have aggravated the killerâ€™s mental disease? The trend these days seems toward a more casual attitude and easier access to those drugs. Among the things we should be discussing in the aftermath of this horror is the accumulating evidence of those drugsâ€™ potential contribution to making some dangerous people even more dangerous than they might otherwise have been.
100,000 100 million Americans have smoked pot. Coincidentally, among that many people, there are some wackos.
Serial killer Ted Bundy started as a paper boy. Maybe we should look into outlawing that. John Wayne Gacy dressed as a clown. Now that’s enough to turn anyone into a serial killer. Adolph Hitler was a vegetarian. Hmmm…
I wonder if Jared Loughner eats Twinkies.
