An Open Letter

Posted in Random by Evan Lisull on 5 March 2009

Dear Ramsey Joseph,

In your letter to the Wildcat today, you wrote the following:

Marijuana has numerous dangers, including some akin to those of alcohol. In fact, in the U.S., U.K. and many other European countries, marijuana is the most common drug (next to alcohol) found involved in fatal accidents and impaired driving cases.

I could not agree with you more – alcohol is an extremely dangerous substance, and the slew of accidents related to drunk driving demonstrate that it cannot be safely consumed by anyone, anywhere. Therefore, I hope you will join my cause in reinstating the Eighteenth Amendment, so that citizens everywhere can once again rejoice in the Eden that was Prohibitionera America.

    To “Drown Randy”: He isn’t a loner for having these believes. There’s no correlation.

    To Evan:
    He’s not in support of Prohibition for discussing the seriousness of drunk driving/marijuana induced accidents. As you (or Connor) once reported, marijuana hasn’t killed anyone in the UA community, but these things are potentially dangerous when used behind the wheel.

    Wow, I guess the lesson here is “Why address an argument when you can straw man it to death?”
