Schapelle, Drugs and the Roots of Prejudice
There was a time when it was OK to flog slaves. It was even 'legal' to do so. There was a time when institutionalised apartheid was de-jour. Governments did business with bad Governments. We dunked people to see if the died and were thus innocent. We burned people for reading the wrong book. We enslaved and massacred people for praying in the wrong direction. We jailed people to correct sexual orientation. We gave shock treatment to 'cure' masturbatory inclinations.
And because all these thing happened in a time when it was 'alright' to do so... there were people who said stuff much like your self.
Just because something is legal and or common doesn't make it laudable..
Putting someone in jail 'for drugs' will soon come to be seen in much the same light. Not so much for the act that got that person there but for the policy that induces that outcome. If we are collectively responsible for that policy, we each bear a portion of the responsibility for its outcomes.
Even if you don't think so...
If you were uneducated and or poorly informed there would be some forgiveness for your horribleness. But that is not the case here is it. You just like being horrible. It is such weaknesses of character that made it easy for folk to turn the key on the locks of the carriages dispatching people to Auschwitz. It wasn't the money. And it wasn't the job. It was closed minds. Shut off to reason and shared humanity.
Such views are dangerous... far more than cannabis could ever be.
