"Policies are judged by their consequences, but crusades are judged by how good they make the crusaders feel." - Thomas Sowell

"Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use." - Jimmy Carter, August 2, 1977
