Nah, no hypocrisy here... Move along... move along now

by Clifford F. Thies

Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, who impresses us not only as intelligent but as intelligent in a mature kind of way, spoke against legalizing marijuana in an interview with Bill O'Reilly. She says legalizing marijuana sends the message that it's o.k. She then points out that different people have different reactions, perhaps intimating that for some people some forms of marijuana actually are o.k. She was also cool with medical marijuana.

FoxNews, "Miss Universe speaks out against legalizing Pot"

Here's what we, as libertarians, can say about marijuana or any other product or service, whether currently legal or illegal: caveat emptor ("let the buyer beware"). As libertarians we do not say legalizing anything means that it is o.k. We're not "nanny-staters." We also support freedom of association so that if an airlines wants to condition the employment of pilots on responsible use of intoxicants or total abstinence, which the liberals would call discrimination.
