A Bodey in Motion

Building momentum, one step at a time

Intermission

Halfway through the 30 Day challenge, and I’ve been sick for three days. My throat is still sore and I’m feeling a bit worn out. I plan on taking a trip to see some kind of physician tomorrow to make sure I don’t have something serious, and maybe to get some drugs to feel better.

No, not those kind of drugs. I don’t do those kinds of drugs.

However, since we’re on the subject, I’ll take this opportunity to reveal something about myself. I support the decriminalization of all recreational drugs, especially marijuana. As a believer in limited government, and, more importantly, as a Christian I feel there is no other position I can take. I understand that’s a somewhat radical stance to just toss out and not offer any additional explanation, but that’s what I’m going to do. For now.

What I will do is offer up this video of Judge Jim Gray. Like me, he once was a firm believer in the War on Drugs, and has since come to see the policy as failed. I hope you find his presentation at the very least thought-provoking.

Congratulations to Arizona for passing Proposition 203. California, better luck in 2012.
