It still makes me wonder how we could really get from here to there (meaning legalization of at least marijuana).  It’s clear that the Democrats should do quite well in the 06 and 08 elections – would this be part of their plan?  If civil liberties were to ride the pendulum, would it be realistic that along with reinstating some that have been lost (here’s hoping that’s a min bar), things like this would also sweep in?

I really wish Mexico (well, President Fox) had stood up and made their legalization stick.  It still amazes me the amount of saber-rattling that “we” get away with.
