I deviated from my usual grandfatherly stance in last week’s blog to lambast the electorate of Washington and Colorado for voting to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
And in doing so, I stepped into a hornet’s nest of angry pot smokers and civil libertarians. You would have thought I was advocating a ban on drinking coffee not smoking pot.
I also caught it on the chin from several people who thought I gave alcoholism a pass vs. marijuana.
And from people who said I shouldn’t be editorializing on the news pages.
About an equal number of people said they agreed with me, and they didn’t seem nearly so angry.
All in all, it was a fun Monday.
