Right kill is the key word. It may not kill you.
Here’s what bothered me yesterday. I find this guy does very noble things such as yesterday, which I though was a honest attempt to address very real existing issues, yet I’m confused.
“I didn’t have a dad in the house, and I was angry about it, even though I didn’t necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn’t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short,” Barrack Obama said.
“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life,” Obama said.
“Those who argue that legalizing marijuana is a panacea and it solves all these social problems I think are probably overstating the case,” Obama added.
“I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.” Obama said
He added that he has told his two daughters Sasha and Malia that “it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy.”
“And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties,” he added.
Yet yesterday he sated…“The only difference is that I grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. So when I made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe,”
“It’s important for society not to have a situation in which a large portion of people have at one time or another broken the law and only a select few get punished,” he said.
Perhaps we are more concerned about these kids than he thinks, they don’t have any problem finding good weed and cheaper than the President can sell it for. The idea is .“I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn’t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short,”
The support system is always the same…“I had people who encouraged me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. And they pushed me to work hard, and study hard, and make the most of myself. And if I didn’t listen, they said it again. And if I didn’t listen, they said it a third time - and they would give me second chances and third chances.”
None encourage the pot smoking, its flat out discouraged. If he wants to be big Brother he should do the same. And stop sticking the kids in jail for being caught with a pocket full of pot bags.
He confuses me.
