Ayn Rand on Drugs
CANNABIS CULTURE – Sep 2 2012
After saying that Ayn Rand was required reading for all his interns, and his biggest influence for getting into politics, GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan has now said he enjoyed Rand's novels but rejects her atheistic philosophy.
I do not approve of any government controls over consumption, so all restrictions on drugs should be removed (except, of course, on the sale to minors). The government has no right to tell an adult what to do with his own health and life. That places a much greater moral responsibility on the individual; but adults should be free to kill themselves in any way they want.
I would fight for your legal right to use marijuana; I would fight you to the death that you morally should not do it, because it destroys the mind. What the government should do is protect citizens from the criminal consequences of those who take drugs. But drugs would be much cheaper if it weren't for government.

Well, there is an especially appropriate task awaiting those heavenly creatures: a long-overdue reform of our disastrous "war on drugs." We should begin by recognizing its costly and inhumane dimensions.
Much of the nation, in one way or another, is victimized by this
failure, including, most notably, the innocents, whose exposure to drugs
is greater than ever.

Senate Report on Cannabis 10-year Anniversary Sept. 4 / 2012
The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws in Canada
NORML Canada is commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the landmark 2002 Senate Report on Cannabis with a campaign to inform Canadians, and especially our politicians, about the serious consequences for Canadian society if we continue to ignore the important findings and conclusions within the Senate Committee’s comprehensive report.
"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with." ('Atlas Shrugged' 1957)
