We can rightfully ignore that ignorance now and that line of thought will likely die off as soon as those people realise nobody cares what they think and they are actually part of a minority. Couple generations down the line and they wont exist anymore.Ironically this is one case where conservatives let their decision making be guided by feels rather than reals.
There is a wealth of scientific evidence in favour of more progressive drug policies, and also how much more harmful alcohol and tobacco are. Yet, conservatives like to ignore all that in favour of rhetoric like, "It's a gateway drug."
I heard that very rhetoric this weekend - that once you start doing weed, soon weed doesn't do it for you and you need to go onto something harder, like snorting heroine up a nostril while a hooker injects heroine into your nipples, while you strangle yourself with a belt. Smoking a joint just doesn't do it for you anymore apparently.
