And if you dig a little deeper, you'll find they probably all had hard liquor before too. And beer before that. And (usually breast) milk before that. Should they all be illegal too, as gateway substances? Alas, if only we lived in the land of the free. Really? It was the weed that got them in trouble in the jungle? And the heroin was....what exactly? Was it necessary to soothe their nerves after one too many hits of thai stick? I fully support your right to stipulate that. I just wish the freedom of the opposite--welcome on mine--was as much a reality.
