I know, I've been getting a little smug lately about all the progress that's been made this year, so let me just burst my own bubble here with an ugly reminder that the drug warriors in Washington, D.C. are still suffering from severe hysteria:
I don't know which is worse, Sen. Colburn's claim that marijuana is "the #1 risk for our kids," or Attorney General Holder's reply that the Feds "will be vociferous in our enforcement efforts." It's the sort of unhinged drug war lunacy that remains easy to obtain in the Nation's Capital, even as supplies are drying up elsewhere.
