Regarding marijuana prohibition, the government has an interest, nay a
duty, to protect its citizens from harmful subtances they might put in
their body. Thus that government imposes punishment for doing so, in
the name of protecting the citizen. This is a rational course of
action, if that country is run by nanny-state liberals who believe the
government is the solution to all problems.

Prohibition is a policy whereby the government threatens its citizens
with punishment, backed up by the police, prosecutors and prisons, for
anyone who steps outside the box of alcohol, tobacco, Prozac and
Valium. Yes, in regards to our bodies, they are owned by the Big Brother.
