National Review favors marijuana legalization
Wow. It’s amazing that they’re coming out in favor of this. Although they still manage to be assholes while doing it.
And, as is their wont, they use a a large number of big words to say really very little. This behavior they would no doubt describe as “erudite” or “learned” or “reasoned and measured.” I think they’re compensating for lack of imagination and inability to structure their rhetoric in sync with their arguments, but that’s just, like, my opinion, man. Even in this case, which is pretty simple, they manage to make it almost sound like they’re not supporting it:
“We ought not pretend that there is no downside to legalization, much less allow ourselves to be seduced by the arguments of the marijuana-is-good-for-you camp[.]”
