"At work"... Jail time if someone uses MJ "at work"??
What if their employer is OK with it?

From where do you get the authority to decide what should be the contract between someone who uses MJ and their employer?

Much like that time there were many people who were against alcohol consumption as there are today, same could be said for guns lots of folk out there wanting to take away that right. I neither drink alcohol or smoke intoxicants, and don't want to share the road with those that do. But I see it as being the same argument. We jail and fine too many people who are just not a threat to society in the big picture to not legalize it, tax it and see the revenue potential.
Prohibition was passed in a flurry of early 20th century progressive amendments. Prohibition is a Progressive concept.

Marijuana prohibitionists are Progressives. To grant the fed authority to prohibit marijuana one must subscribe to a liberal progressive reading of the Constitution, specifically the commerce clause.

In other words, these folks think they're good conservatives but they bastardize the constitution by allowing the fed to seize power. They're liberals and they don't even realize it.

Reminds me of this Dave Chapelle skit: Clayton Bigsby, the blind black white supremacist

And when you have a government that goes against the expressed wishes of the people. ie The people of the state voted for the legalization of marijuana use, or the expressed definition of a marriage is overturned by a government that is the true definition of tyranny

Au contrare mon frair certified, prohibition is the antithesis of progressionism (new word?) now the democrats enacted the 1922 Harrison narcotics act as part of a racist platform, but I would not consider it progressive.

I am on the record as being in favor of the legalization of all drugs except 2, romazicon and narcan. If you OD and are not 6 yrs old or under or visually impaired, I mean accidental OD, then Darwin wins.

But to ascribe prohibition to liberal progressivism, well let's just say I am highly skeptical.

Progressives want to control behavior. The nation was founded upon principles including individual liberty. The conservative view is classic liberalism. Make sense now?

Sceding (sp?) power to the federal government is a progressive principle. Tolerating the federal government seizing power unconstitutionally is a progressive principle. The bastardization of the commerce clause is a progressive principle.

A whole flurry of progressive activity took place in the early 20th century including the Harrison narcotics act and the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th amendments.

You need to remember who the early progressives were and what they believed.

Liberals and conservatives want to control behavior. I associate liberals with a relaxed view on drugs, but HWSNBN shot that in the butt when he said no legalization of MJ.

Prohibition was a result of puritanical women tired of catching a beating Friday and Saturday nights, in broad strokes, no pun intended.
