It seems that Republican Millennials and a wide cross section of Democrat across the board favor marijuana legalization.  What’s happened to American Society?

What about the long-term affects of marijuana usage?

Off course, with peer-pressure young people are susceptible to escalating drug dependency and health issues as they experiment with a fashionable collection of alternative drugs.

These days most North American families have at least one tragedy over drugs abuse.

Let me turn to an open question:

Surely politicians must do what’s right rather than what’s popular?

Thoughts?

Personally, I have been against gay marriage because it undermines the traditional religious views of marriage but also as my colleague John Gelmini highlighted, it is the “thin edge of wedge”.

I used to be a traditional UK Conservative Party supporter but seeing UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, celebrating the success of gay marriage in the UK, I question what ever happened to traditional Conservative Party values?

The article will probably be deeply offensive to many traditional Conservative Party supporters.

As I discussed the article with my wife last night she questioned:

Why doesn’t the Government promote heterosexual marriage?

Any thoughts?
