UN Office on Drug and Crime is calling on governments around the world to decrminalize drug use and possession.
Wonderful. It’s about time that freedom rang around the world.
Drug usage is a consensual crime. It’s a crime against yourself. I’ve said many times as governor that you can’t legislate stupidity. With freedom comes the freedom to be smart and to be stupid. You have to take the good with the bad. But if you start eliminating one of them, you no longer have freedom.
Freedom is far too important to let anything erode it away.
