Let me ask you this. If you can legalize Marijuana why should a big drink or a Croissant be illegal ?
Because there is a "market" for pro-Marijuana and healthy choice votes, but not one for croissant and big drink consumers. Part of the problem is the consumers of these soon-to-be-banned-or-regulated items will have their voices drowned out by the media pushing a healthy lifestyle. While I support healthy choices, I also believe we can make decisions on our own.
Have the FDA regulate excessive arsenic in food? Great - too much and I know I'll die. Have the FDA regulate (what are now) common ingredients in food? Well, I hope the food still tastes the same and has the same texture. Maybe what needs to happen is someone funds a study that "proves" the use of trans fat in marijuana recipes prolongs or enhances the effects of THC - that would at least turn a voter demographic in opposition of this move.
