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.

  1. I’m interested to hear how being a Christian leaves you with no other position than to support the decriminalization of all recreational drugs and especially marijuana.

    • I’m glad you’re interested. That’s cool. Maybe I’ll get to it before the 30 Day challenge is up.

  2. Hey Bodey — CA already passed (some years ago) a medical marijuana law. This year’s prop was recreational. Unfortunately, I didn’t think it was very well written, it left a lot of important issues undecided/unregulated (ie how to determine if you are under the influence when driving). Though I am not a user, I am for it though, once it is properly written.

    • Sam, I’m aware that CA has had medical marijuana for many years, and all the federal raids that have gone along with it. Despite all of it’s warts, I still would have voted for Prop 19. It was better than the status quo. I hope that the authors take the feedback they’ve received and draft a more widely acceptable version for the next election cycle.
