I just rejoined and didn't see this in time. I hope to make the next one. Have fun.
I asked Lee point-blank on online chat one time, because I too, had thought it seemed like his stuff but he denied it. For whatever it is worth, he said, "No, but I really like that."
If we on the right use government force to prohibit adults from doing things we don't like then we have no moral ground to stand on, as the left tries to use government force to "transform" this society into their own ideal. First principles, limited government, maximum individual liberty should be our holdfasts. Only truly needed when someone speaks or acts in a way in which we do not approve but does not infringe on our personal liberties. Marijuana is less dangerous then alcohol and as a mom, I am far more concerned about alcohol over-use and the potential dangers of the police state if my adolescent were to try pot, then I am about the pot itself. Decriminalization is not the same as legalization. Many Californians who don't want users incarcerated, still don't want it government regulated and marketed at the corner drugstore. We allow home brewers to brew their own beer. I say let them grow their own. For the record I worked 5 years on a psychiatric unit and am married to a neurologist so spare me any chemical effect lectures.
