C’mon Derb. This is a compelling case against marijuana decriminalization? I expect to hear such social engineering arguments from Yale professors hoping to tax junk food or communitarians seeking to limit automobile use, but not from a conservative. By Sailer’s reasoning, we should tax, if not prohibit, remote controls! I also think the articles underlying premises are wrong. But even if they are not, the argument “product X” will encourage people to lead less productive lives is hardly a compelling case for criminalization — at least not in a free society.
