Limbaugh and the Law

I'm writing about your thoughtful editorial "Aiming for Rush." I would
like to add that in the eyes of the law, Rush Limbaugh is a drug dealer.

Though Mr. Limbaugh probably never sold any drugs to anybody, if he
possessed or purchased a certain amount of drugs, in the eyes of the
law, he is automatically considered to be a drug dealer.

Is it fair? No. Is it the law? Yes.

Personally, I feel that Mr. Limbaugh or any other adult citizen should
be free to smoke, swallow, snort or inject any substance he or she
wants, especially in the privacy of his or her own home, as long as
the drug user is personally responsible for the consequences.

It seems to me that Mr. Limbaugh should not be complaining that police
are picking on him but rather that the drug laws are wrong.

He should join a long list of true conservatives who oppose our war on
drugs because it is wasteful and counterproductive.

Mr. Limbaugh and others should oppose our drug laws because they take
away our rights as free citizens that our government has no rightful
authority to take away.

Our government cannot protect adult citizens from themselves, and our
government has no rightful authority in attempting to do so.

Mr. Limbaugh should realize this. All true conservatives should
realize this.
