Why I’m not a Republican

Our Greenwich reps oppose the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana. The entire “war on drugs” has caused us to spend billions of dollars uselessly, eroded our freedom (ask any boater who’s been the subject of a U.S. Coast Guard search) and funded the entire third world’s terrorist and criminal population. Dropping possession of marijuana down to an infraction is a small step towards sanity, I think, but Republicans can’t get past the morality of the issue. I fail to see a huge moral difference between vodka and Northern California’s cash crop but even if there is a difference, spending millions on an ineffective prohibition policy makes no economic sense.
