Remember Nancy Reagan? And the age of anti-drug education?
Nancy's "just say no" theme was used to encourage our young minds full of mush to abstain when offered that chance to get high. Even if the pusher was offering it free, at least at first. "Your brain on drugs" commercials soon followed, pointing out the scrambled senses you will endure upon taking such things that promote dependence on controlled substances and the effects of your addiction on family and friends with the later occurring "friends don't let friends use drugs" campaign.
It seems some folks recognized the dangers of addiction, and used media and the first lady's profile to advance that such things like addiction are bad. But now, it has apparently flipped, with Obama playing the pusherman.
What surprises me is that one of our state senators, who by many acts has tried to properly fight addictive drugs, might have missed the addiction he might serve personally to the people in Michigan. Michigan State Senator Jim Marleau seemingly capitulating to an unconstitutional role that the federal government would force on the state's citizenry, appears to be ready to promise our resources in a way that will keep us addicted to federal handouts and mandates into eternity.
The details following below.
