Aaron Houston is a Patriot and a Hero

This week, famous marijuana lobbyist Aaron Houston takes over as Executive Director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy. Count me among the many who are pretty damn excited about it. Aaron is a cool dude and a warrior of justice who has the skills to give the right marching orders in the student movement to end the war on drugs. He even had the willpower to turn down Doritos from Steve Colbert:

The right marching orders

The right marching orders? Guy, whatever you are about, count me out.

bad choice of words.

SSDP is run by the students. The director's job is just to keep everything organized.

I have a lot of respect for

I have a lot of respect for Stephen Colbert but he is an asshole to his guests. I realize he has his whole shtick but he never even lets the other guy talk. I think I like this guy though. I'm in SSDP so I should probably try to find out more about him.

I hope you saw the irony is

I hope you saw the irony is Colbert's interview. He is on the same side as Aaron. They set the whole thing up to show the stupidity of our Government! Excellent segment!
