If you smoke pot and get caught...

...you can't be the next American Idol, but you can be the leader of the British Conservative Party (HT: Sullivan). What kind of world are we living in when pop singers can't smoke pot but Tory politicians can? America's criminalizing attitude towards drugs is sheer stupidity. It must stop. It is embarrassing.

I agree. Americans do not seem to be able to get rid of the Puritan streak they have in them.

The Puritans came to American to be free from others imposing their values on them - our Constitution provides some protection against this happening here (separation of church and state) but we still have Prohibition (no longer for alcohol but still for marajuana).

Our policies in dealing with drugs are very shortsighted.
