Colorado Man under Influence of Legal Pot Kills Wife

When Colorado legalized the recreational use of marijuana, I predicted that it would lead to more deaths in the state. Earlier this month I wrote about the death of Levy Thamba; a 19 year old exchange student from the Republic of Congo.  He and some friends had traveled to Denver on spring break.  One member of the group was 21 and had legally purchased marijuana laced cookies.  Supposedly, none of them had ever tried marijuana...

Why I’m Now against Drug Legalization

I went through a brief libertarian phase on the matter of drug legalization, but now I’ve come back around against it, albeit for different reasons than I was against it before. It could be seen as a logical inconsistency that conservatives would want to keep drugs illegal on the basis that people shouldn’t have them. Is that not the argument liberals use regarding guns? But when a liberal says this, the conservative comes...

We’re Still Demonizing the Wrong Drugs

USA Today posted a “shocking” article about a 19-year-old who ate a pot cookie and jumped/fell from a balcony to his death. In Colorado, of course. This is just one story in a million sprinkled like kief all over the media concerning the fallout from marijuana legalization—Colorado kids getting in to mom and dad’s marijuana edibles, pot at Colorado schools, underage pot use on the rise, etc. But the wrong drug is getting demonized...

Idaho Cop Arrests and Searches Driver for Having Colorado Tags

If you’re driving through Idaho, and you’re from Colorado, that could mean only one thing to an Idaho State Trooper:  Obviously, you’re transporting large amounts of weed in your car. Remember, Colorado decriminalized possession of small amounts of the plant, and as a result, everyone there without exception smokes it. Since all Coloradans are potheads, this Colorado driver’s car (and weed) could be seized by...

Google “Partnering” with Corrupt FDA to Regulate Online Pharmacies

An article in the National Journal has the headline “How Google is Trying to Protect Your Drug Supply.” That sounds nice doesn’t it? Your drug supply. The article outlines how Google is now partnering with federal agencies (mostly the FDA) to make sure that dangerous drugs don’t get into the hands of poor, unsuspecting citizens like you. Thanks, Big Brother! I don’t know what we would do without you! Perhaps my sarcasm puzzles you....

Driver Blows .000 on Breath Test; Gets Arrested for DWI

The Austin, Texas man was pulled over initially for running a stop sign. From the dash cam video footage, it looks to be nighttime. I have to admit, I have on occasion run red lights at night when no one was around, because the light refused to turn green. I don’t know if that was the case here, and I’m not justifying his running of the red light. Just pointing out that it doesn’t always mean the driver must be drunk. [I should point...
