A New Spokesman for Drug Legalization

The campaign to get hip improve the county by getting blasted broadening our consciousness is starting to have a worn-out quality to it.  The drug legalization movement used to have some zip, but that was then.  Timothy Leary passed from the scene long ago, and most of us can't even find our love beads or bell bottoms anymore (this is for those readers old enough to have had love beads or bell bottoms).  Most of the people we hear now campaigning to legalize drugs are either (a) doctrinaire and usually academic libertarians, or (b) libertarian (or extremely liberal) politicians aiming to put some pizzazz in the fundraising base.  Look, next year is a big election!

Still, I'm pleased to see that at least one prominent figure is lending her considerable, uh, visibility to the fight to legalize drugs.  And give her credit for stepping up.  She's not doing the been-there-done-that spiel for pot as the undercard for the hard drugs. Nope, she's right out front, ready to tell us and, in her inimitable way, show us, that it's time to cut loose from all this Church Lady nonsense and get with the New Age.

So, without further adieu, the new leading light for drug legalization............


Another Miley Cyrus song glorifying the party drug molly debuted on Tuesday, making it Cyrus' second song in recent months to mention the dangerous drug.

"Popped a molly and you know, you know you'll never stop, you think I'm turnt up, wait until my album drops," the 20-year-old raps on the remix of "Ain't Worried About Nothin'."  This following her single "We Can't Stop" which included a line about "dancing with molly."

In both, Cyrus is referencing the illegal drug, touted as a pure form of ecstasy. Molly has become increasingly popular both in Hollywood circles and among teenagers and young adults, and it has also been blamed for several deaths. We talked to some users about why they take it, and whether famous performers singing about it plays any role....
