Not at all. I don't support the Vietnam on Drugs; I support biological
warfare against Evil drugs. I won't touch asprin unless there are
squalid, miserable asprin ghettoes. I don't know enough about marijuana
to say whether or not it would be included in the vendetta; on one hand
20% of tenth graders use it, but I haven't heard horrifying reports of
anything *bad* happening to them. I haven't been listening either.
