Sargon knows what Freedom is, and doesn't accept Tyrannical shortcuts which seek to criminalize people who haven't infringed on the rights of anyone, and who are "guilty" only of possessing one of God's own plants, man-made liquid spirits, or medicine.
Criminalizing those who have committed no crime—with the use of draconian Contraband Law—is the veritable epitome of barbarism.
For all intents and purposes, you—and the Leftist nanny-state ilk whose logic you emulate—strive to create a State with the power to criminalize virtually anything. Such a concept of State power cannot possibly be compatible with true Liberty, inasmuch as any emotional mob or persuasive demagogue is can negate Freedom arbitrarily—based on emotion—and in total disregard of what rationally and morally constitutes an actual crime. Anyone who thinks the State can criminalize such things—in the absence of any infringement on another individual's rights—can't legitimately claim to believe in minimal government, for in fact they are attempting to justify its diametric opposite.
The inevitable result of such Law is the "least common denominator" of Freedom—petty Tyrannies popping up everywhere—because there's always a justification to be found on the basis of nanny-state emotionalism. Such a state of affairs is entirely antithetical to true Liberty.
Authoritarians—Left and Right—revel their nanny-state shortcuts. You don't determine what my pursuit of happiness consists of any more than I dictate what yours is. People have an Unalienable right to Privacy and to be left the f-ck alone. And any Tyrant—great or small—who infringes on those Rights—whether because they're evil, or just suffering from a pathological urge to dominate others—shouldn't be surprised when they encounter fierce resistance.
"Spending wastefully" on social issues or anything else isn't something any libertarian advocates. Libertarians are far more fiscally conservative than the vast majority of "conservatives".
The thread you references wasn't "pro-pothead"—a label which is an attempt at pure obfuscation—but rather it was unambiguously anti-authoritarian. Authoritarians' embrace of Tyranny can't be dismissed by the use of insulting and phony labels; such smear tactics are ever the purview of nanny-staters.
All that "team pothead" is doing is pointing out the rank hypocrisy of those who claim to believe in minimal government while simultaneously and enthusiastically calling for an bloated nanny state—and the ever-expanding law enforcement apparatus (Police State) necessary to enforce its draconian edicts.
"Heideggarian"? LOL! You can throw around all the fancy labels you want. They are aught but deflections. Happily, your ilk is in serious decline—and whatever society arises as a result of your repudiation will be infinitely preferable to the pathetic regime which preceded it—policies which have proven to be abject failures since the moment they were conceived—and, of course, Tyrannical to boot.
This nation has been learning the harsh lessons of Prohibition—in all of its asinine forms—for decades. That's why thinking Americans are increasingly and categorically rejecting it. Moving forward, Americans are going to address society's ills without dispensing with so much of that pesky Freedom which seems to make things so difficult for the bullies who always want to take shortcuts. Authoritarians on the Right—and their analogs on the Left—can rationalize their attacks on Liberty only with emotion, deflection, and misrepresentation.
Movies like Reefer Madness—which are now widely recognized as hysterical propaganda—seem to have had a lasting effect on some of the more impressionable and strident Drug War zealots around here. No matter. Such fear-mongering is seen precisely for what it is by the bulk of the populace at this point, and there will be no undoing the progress that's being steadily made against the oppressive and destructive Prohibitionist Mind.
Just as with the unfortunate addicts, there will always be some parochial dinosaurs around to serve as cautionary examples which show the folly of blind reliance on arbitrary law, the horrid abuses which ensue which it is tolerated, and the reliance on hysterical emotion—rather than reason—in a futile attempt to justify it.
So smear away...
