orbister: snocone: So, a work of fiction.The idea that cannabis has no negative effects is as ludicrous as the Reefer Madness alternative. The war on drugs has been discredited (for intelligent people) by hyperbole; it would be a great disservice to do the same for the pro-legalisation argument.
As someone who assigns essays professionally, I'll be the first to say that making them part of a criminal sentence is farked up and bullshiat even before a judge slathers on the transparently useless restrictions on what conclusions the perp is supposed to come to.As freedom-loving Farkers will tell you, I'm a fascist wannabe who never met a cop/judge/tool of the state whose dick I didn't want to slobber all over.* But my God, if we have to have judges playing at being the Thought Police, could they at least do a better job of it? Forcing people to write things you know they don't believe or go to jail demeans everyone, starting with the government that lets it happen.
