Thought for the day...  
Charging someone with using illegal drugs is like charging someone with assault for punching themself in the face.

I would say that is closer to someone stabbing themselves with a fork.

The extent of the damage is beside the point, really.

But if you want to get into that side of things:

Outlawing marijuana whilst alcohol is legal, is like outlawing water pistols whilst machine-guns are legal.

According to this website "The hazardous and harmful use of alcohol led to the deaths of more than 3 600 Australians in 1995, which was almost 3% of all deaths."

I challange you to find a single death attributed solely to the use of marijuana.

Well I am sure at least one person has died while driving a car stoned, but the thing is, they were probably drunk as well.

I also challenge you to turn on your instant messenger, so I can talk to you about Exalted.

I challenge you to watch the Bill Hicks DVD I reently got. Some repetition with what's on his albums, but I think you'll dig it.

Or, if you prefer, recently.

Hmm...I hadn't looked at it that way before but...good point.
