on why I hate freedom...

So the big google news headline of the moment:

The Supreme Court has supported federal outlawing of the use of medical marijuana.

I'd write a full fledged rant here, but I'm at work right now and really can't spare the time. Suffice it to say, I'm pretty vocally anti-government involvement in my life in general and against all the ways that big brother chooses to protect me from killing myself in specific.

But this is just stupid.

I mean, I can understand the outlawing of recreational drugs. I might not agree. But I get it. I can understand the outlawing of stem cell research. I might not agree. But I get it. But the outlawing of medical marijuana? I mean, that's just a big giant fuck you for no good reason. Lets just outlaw chemotherapy too while we're at it. And morphine, cuz I mean, why not?

When I get terminal cancer, I'm gonna start walking around in public places with a joint hanging out of my mouth so big that Tommy Chong is gonna be like "damn, brotha, that's a big joint." If someone has a problem with it, they can shoot me.

EDIT: I am no longer an American citizen. Be it known that as of 11:10 EST, on Monday, June 6, 2005, from this moment forward, I pledge my Groovallegiance to the Funk. Who's with me?
