Notabunny: I'm a grown-up. My wife and I graduated from college, I've been with the same employer for 18 years, I have a mortgage, an SUV, and a schnauzer, my son is in Boy Scouts and my daughter takes ballet lessons, I volunteer at the elementary school and during the community bike path clean up days, and I march in the 4th of July parades. I'm a stable member of my community. I believe I am capable of growing whatever plant I want in my own garden for my own enjoyment, and I believe I can do so without destroying society. I wish my government had as much confidence in my abilities as my neighbors do.
