That's rather inconsistent with libertarianism.


On the contrary sir.  I didn't say anything about law, or prohibiting anyone
from these things.  I unapologetically state my suggestion to leave it all

I know there are those who have success with various things, but I also have
lived long enough to know plenty who do not, plenty who have wrecked lives.
I went to my 30th high school reunion, I noted who had passed on.  We all
knew who was the doper crowd back in the day, and who was not.  I could find
enough representatives of each group to get a statistically significant
result by comparing the groups.  In general, the non-dopers do better.

This is perfectly compatible with libertarianism, which recognizes that
prohibition is a failure.

Living near San Francisco, I also recognize that removing all restrictions
on dope is also a failure.
