That's a big 10-4 Mr. K. 10-98
I know they found over 46.000 plants in one area of one day in Harlan last year. What is the street value on that?
Since the 20's it's been the gun owners, drinkers, now it's the smokers, and next it's going to be the overweight people whose Constitutional rights are under attack.

I have to agree with you on this concept, however, my feeling is it is citizen's lack of responsibility in these areas that causes the government to act. When it comes to smoking tobacco or marijuana, do you really think no one else is affected by the actions either directly or indirectly? I know people with asthma or have children with asthma that fear going out into the public for fear of second hand smoke or just the smell of smoke on someone's clothing causing an asthma attack. How much do tax payers spend on cancers and heart problems directly associated with smoking? My sentiments can be extrapolated to include marijuana and other drugs.
You mentioned overweight people. That is a little trickier subject. It is not a cut and dry issue. There are so many variables when discussing this that you can't, in reality, make a comparison (genetics, medical conditions, exercise or lack of, etc.).
However, one of my pet peeves is standing in the grocery line behind someone with "food stamps" and they have a cart piled to the top with pounds and pounds of junk food and crap that somehow we taxpayers get forced to pay for. Just my opinion.

Freedoms that are slowly trying to be taken away.
The point is, individuals should take personal responsibility. It's not the government's place to regulate people's bodies and penalize the majority of responsible people who can take things in moderation.

Amen to that %110. However, the government should protect us from those that are not responsible or let us protect ourselves from them.
