i must admit, from what i've hear and read of these secret
tapes, i actually admire President Bush more than last week
when I was not privy to such confirmation. For his social
background none of this is surprising - and, you know, it's
a small world and you hear things (six degrees of
separation) - Now, it's confirmed publicly.
so this question needs posed:
why was it such a "big deal" whether President Clinton
inhaled or not?
Growing-up in the eighties, we were bombarded w/ negative
propaganda called the "war on drugs" - - "hugs not drugs" -
because "reefer" was "madness" and would make you stupid,
lazy and lead to harder things - And, yet, Paul McCartney,
who is none of those negative adjectives, has a well known
fondness for the stuff and uses daily - (along w/ Seattle
and Silicon Valley tech pioneers who are now rich legends).
How could Paul McCartney remember the words and music while
on huge tours if on reefer?
In fact, this kind of "smoke screen" put out by the
republican party (and whatever group was lobbying against
marijuana at the time whether rich powerful landowners in
the West trying to use marijuana as a scapegoat to really
get rid of all the south-of-the-border help that was
lingering around after allot of the new construction of the
S.W. - to modern day Pharma) made me have less respect for
my own party because of this unjust and hypocritical
In short, I am tired of my tax dollars paying for people in
the courts and prison who are victimized because of
victimless crimes (such as, personal usage of certain
"illegal" substances) and I hope this public presidential
admission helps to remedy this stupid, hypocritical
