I think the policy of legalizing marijuana is a bad thing, although I would substantially lower the penalties. By the way, I believe “medical marijuana” is harmful too. While the penalties for recreational use of grass are far too high, I would not decriminalize sales of the drug for any purpose.
That got me thinking. I have never smoked marijuana or consumed it in any other way. I think that makes me a dork.* If I am a dork, does that matter in my job as a judge?
What you think?
